Richmond, April, 1865. The Civil War has ended and Caleb DeLeon, a badly wounded Confederate soldier, stumbles into the ruin of what was once his home. His family has fled the City’s destruction leaving two former slaves, Simon and John, to wait and watch. Together they care for the wounded Caleb, and having adopted the religion of their former owners, celebrate Passover. A mesmerizing drama where secrets are revealed and the plot twists and turns. Since opening off-Broadway to critical acclaim and winning the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play, The Whipping Man has become one of the most produced plays in the country.
Playwright Matthew Lopez holds new play commissions from Roundabout Theatre Company, Manhattan Theatre Club and Hartford Stage. He is a staff writer on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series The Newsroom. Timothy Bond is the Producing Artistic Director of Syracuse Stage, where he last directed August Wilson’s Two Trains Running and Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brothers Size.
The Whipping Man is recommended for ages 13 and up due to strong language and some violent content.
