A moving drama about newfound freedom, the legacy of slavery, redemption and regret.
by Matthew Lopez
At the end of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns to find his once-grand home in ruins, occupied only by two of his family’s former slaves. Confronted with a changed, uncertain social order, and bound by the history and faith they share, the three men must grapple with their responsibility toward each other and the secrets they hold. The Whipping Man is a moving drama about newfound freedom, the legacy of slavery, redemption and regret.
