Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, The Book of Grace) continues her longstanding residency as The Public’s Master Writer Chair with FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2 & 3), an explosively powerful drama about the mess of war, the cost of freedom, and the heartbreak of love. PART 1 introduces us to Hero, a slave who must choose whether or not to join his master on the Confederate battlefield. In PART 2, a band of rebel soldiers test Hero's loyalty as the cannons approach. PART 3 finds Hero's loved ones anxiously awaiting his return. FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2 & 3) is a profound and powerful tale about love and hope in a world of impossible choices.
