Father Come Home from the Wars
Toni Rembe Theater
Hero’s master offers him a terrible choice: earn freedom by fighting for the Confederacy, or stay with the woman he loves and remain enslaved. This haunting play fuses classical Greek drama, contemporary wordplay and the soaring spirit of blues, belonging, heroism and freedom. A mythic and music-infused journey of one man’s soul—and of a nation at war with itself—this “provocative, rich, and irreverently funny” (New York Post) new play reaffirms Parks as one of America’s most important voices.
