The Pitch: Lisa Berry on why the latest show from Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre is important

Are you confused about what you’re seeing in the news? I have been. I find Father Comes Home From the Wars to be illuminating and tragically relevant to how our present-day experience was built from the past.

The value that we put on human life and the racial division that has been built over generations is masterfully examined through playwright Suzan-Lori Parks’ words.

All of us working on this production are looking forward to sharing this play with our communities, and hopefully it will start a conversation that leads to change.

This show is for everyone because these are issues of humanity. That’s why you should come see Father Comes Home From the Wars

Lisa Berry stars in the Canadian premiere of Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), which runs at Soulpepper Theatre Company until Aug. 27.
