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

Suzan-Lori Parks

A devastatingly beautiful dramatic

work set over the course of the

Civil War, from one of the theatre’s

most lyrical and powerful writers.

“By turns philosophical and playful,

lyrical and earthy…

Father Comes

Home From the Wars


leaps, dives and soars across three

endlessly stimulating hours,

reimagining a turbulent turning

point in American history through

a cockeyed contemporary lens…

Might just be the best new play

I’ve seen all year.”
