Some people are saddled with the responsibility of being the glue that keeps everyone together. Yet when that person is unsettled in his life, it inevitably affects everyone else as well. This is the case for Joseph, the center of Stephen Karam’s new play Sons of the Prophet. Played by Santino Fontana, Joseph takes care of his younger brother (their parents are dead) and their elderly uncle. He takes a job assisting an eccentric book publisher (Joanna Gleason) merely to have health insurance to pay for his ailing uncle’s medical bills. But when Joseph begins to feel pain in his legs, his undiagnosed maladies might be too much for him to handle.
