The regional premiere of The Whipping Man by Matthew Lopez, directed by Lou Bellamy, is a highlight of the season. A historical drama, this play is set in 1865, the year American slaves were set free throughout the South after centuries of bondage. The play tells the story of three men: A Jewish Confederate soldier and two of his former slaves, also Jewish, who wait for their families to return. As they wait, they explore their past and contemplate their future in a suddenly and fundamentally new world--for the first time they face each other as free men.
