About the show…
From Pulitzer Prize–winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) comes an explosively powerful and lyrical new play set against the backdrop of the American Civil War.
In this epic take on the Odyssey, Southern slave Hero faces a terrible choice: to earn his freedom by fighting for the Confederacy alongside his master, or to stay home with the woman and family he loves but remain a slave. This poignant and musical-infused journey mixes contemporary wit, folk ballads, and classical traditions to tell a timeless story of freedom, heroism, and belonging.
By turns comic and heartbreaking, Father Comes Home from the Wars is a mythic journey through the American soul from one of our most accomplished contemporary playwrights.
As always, your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will be providing complimentary valet bicycle parking. Come park your bike with us or, better yet, volunteer!
