Father Comes Home From the Wars Parts 1 & 2 By Susan-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 yet another empty promise. As his decision brings him face-to-face with a nation at war with itself, the loved ones Hero left behind debate whether to escape or wait for his returnonly to discover that for Hero, free will may have come at a great spiritual cost. Father Comes Home From the Wars is an explosively powerful drama about the mess of war and the cost of freedom, with all three parts seen in one night. Part 1 introduces us to Hero. In Part 2, a band of rebel soldiers test Hero's loyalty as the cannons approach.
Directed by 1st Year MFA Students Reina Jabbour and Peter Ongolo
