This production was staged as part of our 2012/13 Season

The Whipping Man

April 13, 1865, Richmond, Virginia: the story begins. Wounded Jewish Confederate soldier Caleb DeLeon stumbles home. There to greet him are his family's former slaves Simon and John. And a cobbled together Passover Seder. Caught in a moment as everything changes while the past's hold remains primal, Caleb and the men celebrate Passover together where secrets are revealed and the plot twists and turns.
