Every family’s got their stuff, right? The Douaihys have a habit of dying tragically. We’re like the Kennedys without the sex appeal.

Details

Joseph Douaihy, a gay American-Lebanese Maronite Christian in rural Pennsylvania, has a pretty complicated life. When his father dies as the result of a prank, life truly spirals towards the bizarre. With unexplained pain blocking his athletics career, a desperate new boss who wants to capitalize on his grief, a dependent uncle who thinks he’s his legal guardian and a very wayward younger brother, Joseph has a lot on his plate. So he really should not be spending time with the attractive journalist who’s looking for the inside scoop on his father’s accident….

Following Hampstead’s 2018 smash-hit, The Humans, comes Sons of the Prophet, ‘the absolutely wonderful new comedy-drama by Stephen Karam' (New York Times) which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and won the Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play in 2012.

Bijan Sheibani returns to Hampstead to direct; his recent credits include The Arrival (Bush), Dance Nation (Almeida), Barber Shop Chronicles and A Taste of Honey (National Theatre).
