the whipping man
Nashville Repertory Theatre's production of The Whipping Man by Matthew Lopez, featuring former Tennessee Titan Eddie George, Matthew Rosenbaum, and James Rudolph. Live onstage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's (TPAC) Johnson Theater, February 7-21, 2015 with previews Feb. 5-6.
In the post-Civil War South, three men are tied to each other by history and faith, but are also bound by secrets. A badly wounded Jewish Confederate soldier stumbles home at war’s end to find his family has fled to the countryside. Remaining behind to greet him are two of his family’s former slaves… and a cobbled together Passover Seder. The three men unite to celebrate the holiday, even as they struggle to comprehend their new relationships at a crossroads of personal and national history.
