As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets that might cost each man his freedom.

The creative team for THE WHIPPING MAN includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design), Tom Watson (hair & wig design), and J. David Brimmer (fight direction).

PREVIEWS TO BEGIN THURSDAY, JANUARY 13

OPENING NIGHT SET FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1

AT MTC AT NEW YORK CITY CENTER – STAGE I

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce the New York premiere of Matthew Lopez’s THE WHIPPING MAN, directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (The Royal Family, Doubt). The limited engagement will begin previews at MTC’s New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street) on Thursday, January 13, 2011 in preparation for a Tuesday, February 1, 2011 opening night.

April, 1865:  The Civil War has ended. Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns wounded from the battlefield to find his family home in ruins, abandoned by everyone except Simon and John–two former slaves, who were raised as Jews in the DeLeon home.  As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, and recall the exodus from Egypt in light of their own new liberties, they uncover a tangle of secrets… ties that bind them together and that, ultimately, might cost each man his freedom.

The New York debut of Matthew Lopez’s acclaimed historical drama is a tale of loyalty, deceit and deliverance, and a fascinating portrayal of three men, and this country, at a crossroads.

Casting and creative team for THE WHIPPING MAN as well as other listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.
