Professional Theater, Intimate Venue

The Whipping Man, A Drama By Matthew Lopez
It is April, 1865 and the Civil War is drawing to a close. Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns wounded from the battlefield to his home in Richmond only to find it in ruins. The house has been abandoned by everyone except Simon and John, two former slaves, who were raised as Jews in the DeLeon home. As the three men reunite, they uncover deep-buried secrets... ties that bind them together and that, ultimately, could cost each man his freedom. An unflinching play about redemption, forgiveness and the lasting scars of slavery.
