The Whipping Man by Matthew Lopez at Marin Theatre Company
In this explosive and suspenseful drama set at the close of the Civil War, a wounded Jewish Confederate soldier returns home where his two recently freed black slaves remain. When the three Jewish men share an uneasy, improvised Seder to mark Passover, they discover that, though they are no longer tied by ownership, they remain tied by faith, history and explosive secrets. 'A sweeping epic' -- Philadelphia Weekly. Performances March 28 through April 21, 2013.
