  • "Sons of the Prophet" is at the Walton Arts Center's Nadine Baum Studios through Sunday.

7:30 p.m. Nadine Baum Studios. $10-$22.

There's something lovely and personal about seeing a stage play. A big part of it is knowing that the actors you're watching are working without a net, and are doing so not for hundreds of thousands of people, but just for whoever is in the audience. That takes a certain amount of bravery, and comedy takes another layer of bravery yet.

Featured this week at Fayetteville's Walton Arts Center, in the Nadine Baum Studios, is Stephen Karam's critically acclaimed comedy "Sons of the Prophet." A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for drama, the play is the story of two Lebanese-American brothers dealing with the accidental death of their father.

It's recommended for ages 17 and older. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday.
