BWW Review: Unusually Bold and Engrossing FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS by Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright at the TaperBWW Review: Unusually Bold and Engrossing FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS by Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright at the Taper
by Don Grigware - Apr 25, 2016

Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks has the uncanny ability to get under your skin and really make you feel the turmoil and misery of the black soul. In her latest play, now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum through May 15 entitled Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3), Parks takes the audience back to 1862 and the slave involvement in the Civil War starting with the anticipation and fear of going off to war, then witnessing the horrors of the actual war itself, and the aftermath for returning soldiers and their families. Under the sturdy hand of director Jo Bonney, the cast is amazing... and the play is mostly fascinating to watch, mainly because Parks' style does not repeat itself from part to part. (more...)
