The Whipping Man is an original and thrilling new play about the history of race, religious identity and what it means to be free. It is April, 1865, and the Civil War is drawing to a close. Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns wounded from the battlefield to find his family home in ruins, abandoned by everyone except Simon and John, two former slaves who were raised as Jews in the DeLeon home. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets...ties that bind them together and that, ultimately, could cost each man his freedom.
