Melody Angel & Tyrone Phillips
Father Comes Home From the Wars
Hero, a Texas slave, faces a simple yet monumental choice: join his master in the Confederate army and be granted his freedom afterward— or remain enslaved at the plantation. Filled with music, wit and poetic wisdom, Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks’ “masterpiece” (New York magazine) challenges us to navigate our own moral compass in a country that both unites and rips us apart. Live music from Melody Angel!
