Virginia Stage Company Adds Matthew Lopez's The Whipping Man to 2012-2013 Season
War-ruined Richmond, 1865, is the setting for this new drama about faith, family and the costs of freedom. Soldier Caleb, raised a devout Jew, returns home disillusioned and faithless. While he and his family's former slaves work to rebuild their lives and restore their shared faith, secrets threaten their new-found freedom.
Also featured in VSC's 2012-2013 season are August Wilson's Fences, Deborah Brevoort's The Comfort Team, Charles Leipart and Eric Schorr's Frog Kiss and Neil Simon's The Odd Couple.
