Overview

Finalist, 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

"The finest work yet from this gifted writer.""The New York Times"

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 another empty promise. As his decision brings him face to face with a nation at war with itself, the ones Hero left behind debate whether to escape or wait for his return, only to discover that for Hero, freedom may have come at a great spiritual cost. A devastatingly beautiful dramatic work, "Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3) "is the opening trilogy of a projected nine-play cycle that will ultimately take us into the present.
