“Extraordinary!”
The New York Times

Thrilling! A masterpiece
New York Magazine

“Grade A! Echoes of classic literature while doubling down on comedy!”
Entertainment Weekly

 

From Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/UnderdogThe 365 Plays/365 Days Project, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess) comes an explosively powerful and lyrical new play inspired by the Odyssey and set amid the American Civil War.
 
Hero’s master offers him a terrible choice: earn freedom by fighting for the Confederacy, or stay with the woman he loves and remain enslaved. Acclaimed as “funny and tragic, whimsical and lacerating, poetic and poignant” (The Hollywood Reporter), this haunting play fuses classical Greek drama, contemporary wordplay, and the soaring spirit of blues, belonging, heroism, and freedom. A mythic and music-infused journey of one man’s soul—and of a nation at war with itself—this “provocative, rich, and irreverently funny” (New York Post) new play reaffirms Parks as one of America’s most important voices.
