Pulitzer Prize winner and The Public's Master Writer Chair Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, The Book of Grace) continues her longstanding relationship with The Public Theater with FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2 & 3), a devastatingly beautiful, dramatic work set over the course of the Civil War.
Jo Bonney (Small Engine Repair, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark) directs this moving and haunting drama comprised of three plays presented in a single performance. In Part 1, "A Measure of the Man," Hero, a slave who is accustomed to his master's lies, must now decide whether to join him on the Confederate battlefield in exchange for a promise of freedom. Part 2, "A Battle in the Wilderness," follows Hero and the Colonel as they lead a captured Union soldier toward the Confederate lines as the cannons approach. Finally, in Part 3, "The Union of My Confederate Parts," the loved ones Hero left behind question whether to escape or wait for his return - only to discover that for Hero, freedom may have come at a great spiritual cost.
A masterful new piece from one of our most lyrical and powerful writers, FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS is a deeply personal epic about love and hope in a world of impossible choices.

Weary of his royal duties, King Lear proposes to break up his kingdom and generously divide it among his three daughters. Joseph Marcell (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) gives a commanding performance in the definitive title role. With a stellar ensemble of eight masterful actors on a simple stage creating all the characters and performing musical instruments, this remarkable production reinvigorates classic theatricality with the tempestuous poetry of Shakespeare.
Seeking to further the experience and international understanding of Shakespeare, Shakespeare's Globe is dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work, and the playhouse for which he wrote, through performance and education.
A lively part of the British theater tradition, King Lear will be performed in the same manner as Shakespeare's companies would have toured—small troupe, actors inventively doubling roles, and simple storytelling.

The world-premiere of a new musical adaptation entitled Tempest, adapted and directed by Karin Coonrod, with music by La MaMa veteran composer Elizabeth Swados. The international and intergenerational cast will feature Reg. E. Cathay (The Wire and House of Cards) as Prospero, and the 14-year-old star of Broadway's Billy Elliot Joseph Harrington as Ariel. Director Coonrod notes similarities between Prospero's world and ours today, noting, "Prospero re-enacts power games on an island – just as Manhattan is an island – and it is the non-human Ariel is fascinated by humanity's power to love and reminds Prospero of his humanity. The play demonstrates a juxtaposition of time present and timelessness – hence, we will begin the play with a pendulum swinging: a signal of impending disaster and a reminder of time moving forward. A warning."

Lee Blessing's Pulitzer Prize nominated drama, is a revealing debate on the hope and ultimate futility of high-stakes politics. Two super power arms negotiators— one a cynical Russian veteran and the other an idealistic American newcomer — meet informally in the woods after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. A Walk in the Woods is a surprisingly humorous and timely story of the politics that divide us and the humanity that unites us. Mr. Blessing's play is a fictionalized account of the meeting between Paul Nitze and Yuli Kvitsinsky, who took a ''walk in the woods'' during the 1982 Geneva peace talks and came up with their own deal, which was later turned down by the United States and the Soviet Union.
