Stray Cat Theatre
Their tragedy. Your comedy. A 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist and hailed as one of the Top 10 Plays of 2011 from The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Newsday. Brothers Joseph and Charles Douaihy are young, gay, and having a hell of a year. Their father has died and their uncle is losing it - putting the brothers' once unbreakable sense of humor to the test. As if that's not enough, Joseph is battling a mysterious ailment, and his eccentric boss is pressuring him to write a memoir about his Maronite Catholic family's tenuous connection to Kahlil Gibran, author of The Prophet. Things get even more intense when an ambitious and sexy reporter descends on the family in search of a story. Stephen Karam, author of the Stray Cat hits Speech and Debate and columbinus pens a brutally funny comedy about family, culture and how where we come from plays a part in how we cope with wounds that just won't heal.
