About this show

The Old Globe is excited to present an emerging young voice, Matthew Lopez, with his acclaimed new play, The Whipping Man, set in the days following The Civil War in Virginia when American slaves were set free throughout the South. A Jewish soldier returns to his childhood home, only to find it in ruins and occupied by his former slaves. Though a new chapter of history is unfolding, dangerous secrets of the past threaten to destroy their family, their history, and their faith. The Whipping Man is a moving and provocative look at a pivotal time in American history.
