Normal Ave presents a new staging of Stephen Karam's 2012 drama, a compassionate comedy about human suffering.
"Sons of the Prophet," a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for drama, brings the audience into the lives of Joseph and Charles Douaihy. 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.
