Dana and Samuel are a young couple trying to conceive a child, but things are not going well. After a tense argument, Samuel is left alone in the kitchen when two people tumble out of his refrigerator. It turns out that their fridge does more than make ice and chill beer -- it's a time portal to Austria in the late 1800s. Government agencies get involved in the investigation and the president tries to take advantage of the portal to boost his flagging poll numbers, threatening to tear apart the space-time continuum. Renegade Theatre Experiment, the finest in South Bay alternative theater, explores love and babies as they test the theory of relativity in this new comedy. Learn More

WOW! I wish there were more stars that I could have given "The Whipping Man". This play was outstanding and riveting. I had a friend cancel out on me at the last minute but I decided to go by myself and I thank God that I did. The 3 actors were outstanding. In fact I made it a point of waiting around until after most of the patrons left the theater and finally the actors came out. I had to thank them for their outstanding and moving performances and their great professionalism. I was so taken by their performances. This play and these actors made the audience feel a gamut of strong emotions in telling their compelling story. This is the first time that I have been to the Historic Hoover Theater and after The Whipping Man I will definitely return again and again. The powerful performance of these actors actually made me cry and I had to let them know of their success. I highly recommend this play to anyone wishing a great night of outstanding theater and of really feeling alive. Go see it.
This show is rated “13+” — recommended for those age 13 or older.
_The Whipping Man _contains themes for more mature audiences. It may contain some profanity, violence or brief nudity, but these elements should not be too intense for most audiences. That being said, some material may not be appropriate for everyone.
