Written by Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient Suzan-Lori Parks, Father Comes Home from the Wars is inspired by the Odyssey and set amid the American Civil War.

The creative team includes Yi Zhao (lighting designer), Sarah Nietfeld (costume designer), Riccardo Hernández (scenic designer), Fred Kennedy (sound designer), Randy Duncan (choreographer), and Rick Sordelet (fight director).
