Father Comes Home from the Wars is a modern play set against the backdrop of the Civil War. Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks writes a provocative and thrilling tale about a slave who must earn his freedom by fighting for the Confederacy. Using music, poetry and contemporary slang, Father Comes Home from the Wars invites us to decide who we are in a country that both rips us apart and brings us together.
