The Whipping Man, by Matthew Lopez: The Civil War is over. Throughout the South, slaves are being freed and soldiers are returning home. In one home, the annual celebration of Passover is celebrated by a young Confed- erate officer, who has been severely wounded, and two former slaves. However, the pain of enslavement will not be soothed by this tradition. Deeply buried secrets from the past refuse to be hidden forever, as the play comes to its conclusion.
January 4 @ 6:30 PM - RLT will hold a panel discussion at the Mordecai Historic Park in Raleigh. The panelists will discuss the themes of the play and the history of the Jewish faith in the American South at the time of the Civil War, a history rarely heard, that parallels that of the Mordecai family in certain ways. Scenes from the play will be presented in support the discussion.
January 22 @ 2:00 PM - This performance will be audio described for the visually impaired
Starting at $15
