    Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks' "blazingly original" (The Washington Post) Civil War epic serves up "an American story as much abour our present as it is about our past" (The Los Angeles Times). Filled with music, wit and poetic wisdom, this devastatingly beautiful work challenges us to navigate our own moral compass in a country that both unites and rips us apart.
