March 31 - April 22, 2017
The Whipping Man
By Matthew Lopez

It is April, 1865. The Civil War is over and throughout the south, slaves are being freed, soldiers are returning home, and in Jewish homes, the annual celebration of Passover is happening. Into the chaos of war-torn Richmond comes Caleb, a young Confederate officer who is severely wounded. He finds his family’s home in ruins and abandoned, save for two former slaves, Simon and John, who wait in the empty house for the family’s return. As the three men wait for their city to come back to life, they wrestle with their shared past, the bitter irony of Jewish slave-owning, and the reality of their new world.

The sun sets on the last night of Passover, and Simon – having adopted the religion of his masters – prepares a humble Seder to celebrate the freeing of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt, noting with particular satisfaction the parallels to their current situation. But the pain of their enslavement will not be soothed by this tradition, and deep-buried secrets from the past emerge as the play comes to its shocking climax.


“A mesmerizing drama” – Peter Filichia, Newark Star-Ledger.

“Haunting, striking, and powerful” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times.

“...[August] Wilson-like with epic American issues of race, religion, and responsibility. Someone must succeed Wilson; it might as well be Lopez.” – Tim Gihring, Minnesota Monthly.
