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

February  7–March  5, 2020


Set during the Civil War, this explosively powerful new drama by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks follows a slave, Hero, from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield. Filled with music, contemporary wit and epic theatricality, this trilogy tells a timeless story about the struggle to hold on to who we are and what we love in a country that forces us to fight battles we didn’t choose for ourselves.
