She graduated from The John Carroll School in 1981[3] and from Mount Holyoke College in 1985 with a B.A. in English and German literature (cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa).[4]Her plays include Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom, The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World, The America Play (the opening scene of which inspired Topdog/Underdog), Venus (about Saartjie Baartman), In The Blood and Fucking A (which are both a retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 novel The Scarlet Letter).From November 2002 to November 2003, Parks wrote a short play each day for a year.
