The Regional Premiere of a play by Matthew Lopez. In the aftermath of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns home to discover two of his former slaves living in the ruins of his family’s once grand plantation. Bound together by faith, they reunite to celebrate Passover and confront their past, present and future. The Whipping Man is a hauntingly powerful drama about newfound freedom and the painful legacy of slavery.
