"The Whipping Man"

This afternoon, I saw the play, The Whipping Man at Center Stage in Baltimore, MD. This play was written by Matthew Lopez and it was directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah.

Synopsis:

Why i sthis night different from all other nights? For three Richmond Jews - one a former Confereate solder, two his former slaves - gathered around a makeshift Seder table at the close of the Civil War, age-old questions of justice and freedom find new and surprising answers.

Cast:

Michael Micalizzi - Caleb
Kevyn Morrow - Simon
Johnny Ramey - John

All three actors were excellent in delivering the angst, pain, sorrow, and joy related to the effects of war and with it, the promise of freedom. This is a must see play - two thumbs up!
