The Whipping Man
TPAC’s Polk Theater
"A compelling Civil War-era drama, filled with fine characterization and unexpected moments of humor." - The New York Times.
A badly wounded Jewish Confederate soldier stumbles home at war's end to find his family has fled to the countryside. Remaining behind to greet him are two of his family's former slaves...and a cobbled together Passover Seder. The three men unite to celebrate the holiday, even as they struggle to comprehend their new relationships at a crossroads of personal and national history.
Join director Rene Copeland, Rabbi Shana R. Mackler, and Professor Richard Blackett and get to know this gripping play starring Eddie George, Matthew Rosenbaum, and James Rudolph.
