TOP RATING! “Complex, resonant… The Whipping Man‘s a concentrated dose of potent history; with a mix of humor and intense drama that ensure the standing ovation.” – SF Chronicle

Days after the South surrendered to the Union, two emancipated slaves find themselves caring for their former owner’s son, a Confederate captain who was seriously wounded during the final battle of the Civil War. When the three Jewish men share an uneasy, improvised Seder to mark Passover, they discover that, though they are no longer tied by ownership, they remain bound by faith, history and explosive secrets.

“One-of-a-kind powerhouse; a rare theatrical must-see.” – Mill Valley Herald
