About the show

Finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, ‘Sons of the Prophet’, is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal. More…

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 the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see.
