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

Suzan-Lori Parks

Offered his freedom if he joins his master in the ranks of the Confederacy, Hero, a slave, must choose whether to leave the woman and people he loves for what may be another empty promise. As his decision brings him face to face with a nation at war with itself, the ones Hero left behind debate whether to escape or wait for his return, only to discover that for Hero, freedom may have come at a great spiritual cost. A devastatingly beautiful dramatic work, Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) is a 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist and the opening trilogy of a projected nine-play cycle that will ultimately take us into the present.
