The world premiere production will be seen at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, beginning January 2015.Praise for "Father Comes Home From the Wars: ""By turns philosophical and playful, lyrical and earthy, Suzan-Lori Parks's new play, "Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), "swoops, leaps, dives and soars across three endlessly stimulating hours, reimagining a turbulent turning point in American history through a cockeyed contemporary lens... The finest work yet from this gifted writer... It] just be the best new play I've seen all year... The wonder of Ms. Parks's achievement is how smoothly she blends the high and the low, the serious and the humorous, the melodramatic and the grittily realistic; she has] a voice that can transform blunt, vernacular language into fluid, flowing free verse." - Charles Isherwood, "New York Times""A nine-part serial whose first three parts are now being produced... Can one-third of something already be a masterpiece? Seems like it to me.... People long for stories that engage the deepest possible issues in the most gripping possible ways." Father Comes Home From the Wars "is one of those stories -- or maybe more than one." - Jesse Green, "New York "Magazine"Brilliant, beautiful... With this vibrant freestanding trilogy... Parks has achieved something that engages with a bold theatricality both lyrical and raw, without sacrificing any of her thematic ambition or her structural and intellectual complexity. Each of the three parts thrums with its own vitality and they] form a mutually invigorating whole. Parks' incomparable command of percussive vernacular is no surprise, and her dialogue here might just as easily be sung. This haunting work is funny and tragic, whimsical and lacerating, poetic and poignant, navigating its radical tonal shifts with fluidity and grace.... If Parks can sustain her sprawling project at this level as it moves forward, there's every reason to hope it will ultimately become no less significant and emotionally resonant an undertaking than August Wilson's ten-play "Century Cycle."" - David Rooney, "Hollywood Reporter" "The best new play of the year... It is bold, hugely entertaining, moving and thrillingly ambitious. Playwright Suzan-Lori Parks bids fair to create a sprawling multi-part epic to plant alongside August Wilson's monumental Century Cycle, one of the great achievements in theater history. Parts 4 through 9 (? or more?) can't come fast enough for me." - Michael Giltz, "Huffington Post"
