With the patronage of the Lebanese Ambassador, AM Productions has been able to revive the biographical play of Kahlil Gibran. Gibran was a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer, who emigrated to America as a young man. He was considered a literary rebel in his home country, with a Romantic style that moved away from classical prose.
Gibran's Rest Upon The Wind was inspired by the writer's most famous book, The Prophet (1923), which consists of twenty-six prose poetry essays. The play explores Gibran's memories of childhood in his home country, the loss of his family when moving to America, and the struggle to fit into a new society.
The show is being be performed at the Royal Theatre Haymarket until 17th November, and seats cost between £22-£97.
