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.  The Bedrosian Center will participate in a post-show discussion with a panel of community experts and esteemed guests to discuss and explore selected themes of the show with the audience.

For information about this production and the play, see “The Whipping Man”: A Night Different from All Other Nights by Andy Knight, in the South Coast Repertory.
