Jenny Jules leads in Father Comes Home from the Wars

Jenny Jules stars in Father Comes Home from the Wars which opens at the Public Theater New York on October 28th.

Father Comes Home from the Wars is Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks' new play, which is directed by Jo Bonney for the Public and is described as a new American Odyssey, set during the course of the Civil War.

At the heart of the story is Hero, a slave who is offered his freedom if he agrees to join his master in the ranks of the Confederacy. Jenny plays Penny, the woman loved by Hero who is left behind. 

Following its New York run, Father Comes Home from the Wars will transfer to the American Repertory Theater in Boston in the new year.
