Anthony Miclon is making his LTM debut as Joseph Douaihy’s younger brother, Charles, in Sons of the Prophet. He currently lives in Enfield and is a graduate of Eastern Connecticut State University, where he majored in Communication and served as a producer, director, and anchor for E-TV. During the day he works as a videographer and editor and enjoys writing, stand-up comedy, and film.
In the role of Bill, Joseph and Charlie’s Uncle, is James Hyland. James was born in Hartford but now resides in Newington. He has studied at the National Shakespeare Co. in New York and at the Hartford Stage Co. Jim was most recently featured in The Dionysus Theater Company’s production of Hamlet. He played Brabantio in Capital Classics production of Othello, Eddie in Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers at the Warner Theatre, Shabelski in Anton Chekhov’s Ivanov at Corpus Quixote in Hartford, and David in the New England premiere of Ingmar Bergman’s Through a Glass Darkly at the Hole in the Wall Theater.
Like Joseph and Gloria, Charles and Bill must both deal with their own personal suffering in this play. Playwright Stephen Karam says, “The play features many characters struggling with lingering pain, whether it’s physical or emotional. Joseph’s symptoms are unrelenting; Gloria worries her traumatic past will always loom over her life; Joseph and Charles will never get to speak to their parents again; Bill knows his health will never fully return – they’re all at a stage where it’s less about popping a pill and nipping their troubles in the bud, and more about starting the slow, complicated journey to coping. Figuring out the best way to move forward in the face of no easy answers.”
