Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3)

Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks’ “blazingly original” (The Washington Post) Civil War epic serves up “an American story as much about our present as it is about our past” (The Los Angeles Times).

Hero, a Texas slave, faces a simple yet monumental choice: join his master in the Confederate army and be granted his freedom afterward— or remain enslaved at the plantation. Filled with music, wit and poetic wisdom, Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks’ “masterpiece” (New York magazine) challenges us to navigate our own moral compass in a country that both unites and rips us apart.
