The Whipping Man

Sitting at any Passover Seder is a meaningful experience. Sitting at a Passover Seder with two newly-freed slaves in Richmond, Virginia in 1865 brings new dynamics to that experience. This is just what is occurring when the intricate stories begin to unfold in The Whipping Man, written by Matthew Lopez and directed by Jennifer Nelson, now playing at Theater J in Washington, DC. The two former slaves and the son of their former master explore slavery, secrets and the souls of men. Reviewers and crowds have applauded the production that runs through May 20.
