Description

The Marsh is proud to present the world premiere of Come Home, Jovelyn Richards’s new solo play about twenty-six black soldiers who leave their home in lynch-torn rural Arkansas to fight against Germany in the Second World War. There are thirteen survivors. Although the plot unfolds in the segregated South, Come Home is timeless in its evocation of how war and violence can change a community and its way of life, both for the men who return and the families who waited for them. Richards’ heroine is Donna Ray, a joyous young bride romping in the fields as the play opens, a resilient Mrs. D at its close. Despite much violence and tragedy, her optimism and love never fade.
