Description

The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history has epics of its own. "Father Comes Home From the Wars", like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks ("Topdog/Underdog") at San Diego's Horton Grand Theatre follows the slave, Hero, who agrees to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for his freedom, traveling from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by "The New York Times", the "Father Comes Home From the Wars" trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.
