"Sons of the Prophet"

Friday, November 04, 2011

Playwright Stephen Karam talks about his dark comedy “Sons of the Prophet,” with stars Joanna Gleason and Santino Fontana.  It’s about a man who suffers from chronic pain and carries the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders. His health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. It’s been called the funniest play about human suffering you’re likely to see. “Sons of the Prophet” is playing at the Laura Pels Theatre through January 1, 2012.

Guests:

Santino Fontana, Joanna Gleason and Stephen Karam

The remarks about Lebanon & the 2 gay brothers reminds me of a play called "Miss Reardon Drinks a Little," in which a character refers to a lesbian couple as "Lebanons."
