If you are in NYC this fall, take an evening and stop and see the talented SKB. Sterling is resuming his role in Father Comes Home from the Wars (Part 1, 2, and 3) this fall in NYC from October 16 – November 14, 2014. Pulitzer Prize winner and The Public’s Master Writer Chair Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, The Book of Grace) continues her longstanding relationship with The Public Theater with FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2 & 3), a devastatingly beautiful, dramatic work set over the course of the Civil War. Jo Bonney directs this moving and haunting drama comprised of three plays presented in a single performance:

• Part 1: “A Measure of Man” – Hero, a slave who is accustomed to his master’s lies, must now decide whether to join him on the Confederate battlefield in exchange for a promise of freedom.
• Part 2: “The Battle in the Wilderness” – Hero and the Colonel lead a captured Union solider toward the Confederate lines as the cannons approach.
• Part 3: “The Union of My Confederate Parts” – the loved ones Hero left behind question whether to escape or wait for his return – only to discover that for Hero, freedom may have come at a great spiritual cost.
A masterful new work from one of our most lyrical and powerful writers, FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS is a deeply personal epic about love and hope in a world of impossible choices. Presented in association with American Repertory Theater.
