The Whipping Man

Off Broadway Play - Drama — 

April, 1865: the Civil War has ended. 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, and recall the exodus from Egypt in light of their own new liberties, they uncover a tangle of secrets...ties that bind them together and that, ultimately, might cost each man his freedom.

Starring two-time Emmy® Award winner Andre Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide”), alongside Andre Holland (Joe Turner’s Come and Gone) and Jay Wilkison (Rent, Rabbit Hole), in the New York debut of Matthew Lopez’s fascinating new play.
