The Whipping Man
by Matthew Lopez
March 29 April 27
Previews March 27 & 28
Can loyalty and freedom coexist? A Jewish Confederate soldier returns from war to his house in shambles. Two former slaves greet him, one who stayed and one who is returning. As they observe Passover and remember the Jewish exodus from Egypt, their shared pasts and secrets threaten the freedom of all three men.
Note: This play is set within the reality of wartime suffering. The production itself does not depict scenes of violence between slaves and owners, however it does contain profane language and vivid descriptions of war and slavery. Recommended for ages 16+
