Set in Virginia following the final days of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his childhood home, only to find it in ruins and occupied by his former slaves who are preparing for a Passover Seder. Though a new chapter of history is unfolding, dangerous secrets of the past threaten to destroy their family, their connected history and their shared faith. The Whipping Man is a moving and provocative look at a pivotal time in American history.
The production features Avery Glymph, Charlie Robinson and Mark J. Sullivan. Giovanna Sardelli directs the San Diego production at the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre.
