The playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, who grew up in a military family and attended high school in West Germany, knows what it is to be an outsider. In college at Mount Holyoke, she showed such promise with short fiction that James Baldwin, who was her teacher, encouraged her to try writing plays. In works such as “Venus” (about an African woman in the eighteen-hundreds who displayed her derrière in London freak shows) and “In the Blood” (a revision of “The Scarlet Letter”), Parks converses with history to redefine how black men and women are depicted in the theatre. Her long relationship with the Public, which began in 1993, led to “Topdog/Underdog,” the 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, and, now, “Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3),” starring Sterling K. Brown (above), as a slave who fights in the Confederate Army in order to gain his freedom.
