Before this matinee performance, get hands-on with the theater artists who make it happen at this interactive workshop.

How does music inform and create a story—especially when that story is a new American epic that combines elements of Greek drama, world literature, American history, contemporary language, and soulful blues interludes?

How does the music reflect and enhance the journeys of the characters in Father Comes Home from the Wars? In this special pre-show workshop, you will gain firsthand insight from the principal and understudy musicians who create the spirit of Suzan-Lori Parks’s mythic drama—don’t miss this opportunity to hear from beloved Bay Area musician/performers Martin Luther McCoy and David James—and their guitars!

Please RSVP for the workshop by emailing, letting us know the number of participants and whether each is an adult, student, or child. (Space for this workshop is limited, so please plan to arrive early for this very popular preshow experience.)

*The doors to The Geary Theater will open at 12:30 p.m.; you will be escorted upstairs to the Garret for the workshop, which will begin promptly at 12:45 p.m. The matinee performance of Father Comes Home From the Wars will begin at 2 p.m.


*Most InterACT events are free for ticket holders. Please note that performance times vary.
