WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks continues her longstanding residency as The Public's Master Writer Chair with Father Comes Home From the War (Parts 1, 2, and 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 War (Parts 1, 2, and 3) is a profound and powerful tale about love and hope in a world of impossible choices.
