WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

As the Civil War ends, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns home to find that only his two former slaves, raised as Jews in his household, remain. As they cobble together a Passover Seder, they grapple with a changing social order, newfound freedom, and long-buried secrets that threaten them all. This story of self-definition, discrimination, and the pain of being an outsider forces all three men to ask what their futures hold in a new world of freedom. One of the most produced and popular plays of 2012, The Village Voice calls it "wonderfully satisfying."
