Stephen Karam’s award-winning comedy Sons of the Prophet comes to Hampstead Theatre this Christmas.

Running from 3 December 2022 to 14 January 2023, the play is directed by Bijan Sheibani.

Irfan Shamji (Hamlet, Chasing Hares) plays Joseph Douaihy, a gay American Maronite Christian in rural Pennsylvania, who 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, played by Jack Holden (Cruise), who’s looking for the inside scoop on his father’s accident.

Also in the cast are Raphael Akuwudike (First Touch, The Jumper Factory), Holly Atkins (The Book of Dust), Juliet Cowan (Everything I Know About Love, I Hate Suzi, Fresh Meat), Raad Rawi (An Honourable Woman), Eric Sirakian (The Kite Runner), and Sue Wallace (Allelujah).

Alongside Bijan Sheibani in the creative team is designer Samal Blak; lighting designer, Jack Knowles; sound designer, Giles Thomas; casting director, Julia Horan and assistant director, Stepan Mysko von Schultze.

Stephen Karam’ Sons of the Prophet was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and won the Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play in 2012.
