Playwright Stephen Karam says it just might be “the best of both worlds.” Karam, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his dark comedy “Sons of the Prophet,” is talking about the idea of audiences reading a play and hearing the playwright speak before they see the show. It’s something new in Northwest Arkansas, a cooperative effort between the Fayetteville Public Library, where Karam will speak Feb. 2, and TheatreSquared, which will present “Sons of the Prophet” Feb. 15-March 3.
