The Whipping Man was profoundly memorable evoking layers of deep emotions for me. There were so many issues being dealt with in this play to ponder that I plan on seeing it again. Absolutely amazingly crafted by everyone at Taproot. The performances by the three actors were so mesmerizing; especially Simon. Bravo!

Exceptional performance, powerful cast and incredible story. It leaves one thinking about it for days.

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.
