"Father Comes Home From The Wars" Calendar Release


April – May 2016


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

by Suzan-Lori Parks

Directed by Jo Bonney

West Coast premiere.


In this devastatingly beautiful new play set during the Civil War, a slave named Hero is offered his freedom if he joins his master in the ranks of the Confederacy. The choice is to leave the woman and people he loves for what may be an empty promise. His decision brings him face to face not only with a nation at war with itself, but with what freedom truly means.
