bravura performance - only 3 people throughout the whole play and how did they ever grip us as the drama unfolded. The acting, diction, accents, costumes, props,... continued

Description

By Matthew Lopez

Can loyalty and freedom coexist? A Jewish Confederate soldier returns from war to his house in shambles. Two former slaves greet him, one who stayed and one who is returning. As they observe Passover and remember the Jewish exodus from Egypt, their shared pasts and secrets threaten the freedom of all three men.

This play is set within the reality of wartime suffering. It contains profane language and vivid descriptions of war and slavery. Recommended for ages 16 and over.
