Hero’s Journey

A Look at Southern Rep’s Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3)



One of the most fascinating aspects of Southern Rep’s newest production is how director Valerie Curtis-Newton and her cast express the intertextuality of the text with expert ease. Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), the 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist work by Suzan-Lori Parks, offers intercultural exchanges between Greek epics, Civil War spirituals, blues guitar songs, and modern day slang. What might be played as disjointed in less capable hands, Southern Rep Theatre synthesizes into a powerful examination of where our country comes from and where we are now.
