Museum Presents Poetry of the Prophet


"Taste Traditions of Wisconsin" is a regular series that highlights Wisconsin's rich heritage through food, history and sharing stories

Forward Theater Company will open its 2013-14 season with the Wisconsin premiere of "Sons of the Prophet" by acclaimed playwright Stephen Karam during the next Taste Traditions of Wisconsin dinner theater event on Thursday, October 24, from 6:30 to 9 pm at the Wisconsin Historical Museum in Madison. A dark comedy about one family's ability to withstand a hailstorm of misfortunes, the play's main character is a distant relative of Lebanese-American poet Khalil Gibran, author of "The Prophet."

Madison-Area Poets' Contributions Complement the Drama

To complement the production, the Wisconsin-based poetry organization and magazine, "Verse Wisconsin," invited Madison-area writers to create original poetry in response to the play's source material and subject matter. Get a taste of Forward Theater Company's opening production and hear the poetry it inspired through readings and short scenes. An autumnal dinner will accompany the performance.
