Stray Cat TheatreBrothers 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.
