In the aftermath of the Civil War, Caleb, a wounded, Jewish Confederate officer, returns to his family home in Richmond only to find that his family has fled to the country. Left behind are two former slaves, Simon and John, raised by his family as Jews. As the three men unite to celebrate Passover, they struggle to overcome their shared past and the reality of the new world in which they find themselves. An extraordinary story of loyalty, deceit and deliverance, The Whipping Man is a unique look at a pivotal point in history. Learn More

A wonderful experience! If you can get a ticket before it closes, go see it! A wonderful, beautifully written script performed by an all star cast of superb actors. Unrelated to the script or the acting, I was displeased that the producer chose to oversell the house and sat latecomers in folding chairs in the single aisle. It would not have been easy to evacuate the house in the event of an emergency.
