Rest Upon the Wind is a play that was inspired by Gibran's most famous book, The Prophet. It was produced in London's West End in 2011 and shown at the famous Haymarket Theatre Royal to a packed house in 2013 has been successfully staged in a number of countries in the Middle East, and will be going on a World tour, including North America, starting early 2016. The play reflects the ups and downs of Gibran's life as an immigrant poet/artist; the troubles and cruelties of his daily life that led him to seek the highest level of spirituality in his work. It is the story of his artistic and spiritual journey to deliver his message of love, peace and unity, and it is the story of those who helped him along the path.

Stay Tuned for the North American tour.
