It is Passover, 1865. The Civil War has just ended and the annual celebration of freedom from bondage is being observed in Jewish homes across the country. Confederate officer Caleb DeLeon returns to his ruined plantation only to find his family missing and two former slaves, Simon and John, remaining. As the three men wait for the family's return, they wrestle with their shared past relationship as master and slave, digging up long-buried family secrets along the way. Slavery and war, they discover, warp even good men's souls. THE WHIPPING MAN is a bold and compelling new work that won the 2011 Playwriting Award by the NY Outer Critics Circle.
