THE WHIPPING MAN

Julianne Argyros Stage
The Civil War has ended, leaving destruction in its wake. As a raging storm illuminates what’s left of a once majestic plantation home, three Jewish men prepare for Passover—the owner’s son and his family’s former slaves. Only one of them, Simon, remains strong in his faith, but it is threatened by truths about what happened in this house—and in their lives—during its antebellum days. Stage and television star Charlie Robinson plays Simon in this compelling drama that ran away with New York’s Obie, Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle awards.
