April 1865. The Civil War is over. Throughout the South, men and women once enslaved are now freed. Defeated soldiers in gray are returning home. Into the chaos of war-ravaged Richmond, Virginia comes Caleb DeLeon, a severely wounded Confederate officer who is Jewish. He finds his family’s home in ruins and abandoned. The only familiar faces left are Simon and John, two former slaves, waiting for the family to return. While they look out for signs of a return to normality, the three men struggle with their shared past and the reality of the new world they now live in.
THE WHIPPING MAN is a play of redemption and forgiveness, about the lasting scars of slavery, and the responsibility that comes with freedom.
