The Public Theater production of Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks' trilogy Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) officially opened Off-Broadway Oct. 28 after previews that began Oct. 14.

The complete cast features Sterling K. Brown (Hero), Louis Cancelmi (Smith), Peter Jay Fernandez (Oldest Old Man), Jeremie Harris (Homer), Russell G. Jones (Leader, Runaway), Jenny Jules (Penny), Ken Marks (Colonel), Jacob Ming-Trent (Fourth, Odyssey Dog), Tonye Patano (Third Runaway) and Julian Rozzell Jr. (Second, Runaway).

Here's how the Public bills the works: "In Part 1, A Measure of the Man, Hero, a slave who is accustomed to his master’s lies, must now decide whether to join him on the Confederate battlefield in exchange for a promise of freedom. Part 2, The Battle in the Wilderness follows Hero and the Colonel as they lead a captured Union solider toward the Confederate lines as the cannons approach. Finally, in Part 3, The Union of My Confederate Parts, the loved ones Hero left behind question whether to escape or wait for his return - only to discover that for Hero, freedom may have come at a great spiritual cost."
