Boston Conservatory at Berklee Presents Comedic Play 'Sons of the Prophet' December 6 through 9

November 20, 2017

Boston Conservatory at Berklee presents Sons of the Prophet, Stephen Karam’s 2012 Pulitzer finalist play about a Lebanese-American family living in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, at the Boston Conservatory Theater, December 6 through 9.

Sons of the Prophet is a dark comedy about pain and loss, and how much the human condition can handle. The Conservatory’s production is directed by alumnus Mike Mosallam (M.M. '06, musical theater).

If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy is more alive than most. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph’s health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is one of most comedic plays about human suffering in recent years.

The New York Times said of the play, “Written with insight and compassion, not to mention biting wit, it shines a clarifying light into some of life’s darker passages, exploring how people endure the unendurable, and not only survive but also move forward through their blighted lives with sustaining measures of hope, love and good humor.”

Sons of the Prophet, originally commissioned and produced by New York’s Roundabout Theater Company, was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and winner of the 2012 Drama Critics Circle, Outer Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel, and Hull-Warriner Awards for Best Play.
