The Whipping Man

The Whipping Man

March 8 to April 7, 2013 | On the Hertz Stage
Part of the Hertz Stage Series

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.
