Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the most daring and important voices working in the theatre today. “The America Play” is a haunting and unforgettable meditation on family, memory, and the collective cultural consciousness of our Great Country. Seen through the eyes of the “Foundling Father” (who impersonates Abraham Lincoln in a sideshow attraction at “The Great Hole of History,”) and the wife and son who search for him, “The America Play” explores what it means to dig: into the earth, into the past, into our hearts.
