New York Premiere
By Matthew Lopez
Directed by Doug Hughes
with André Braugher, André Holland and Jay Wilkison
Three men tied by faith, bound by secrets.
See two-time Emmy® Award winner André Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide”), alongside André Holland (Joe Turner’s Come and Gone) and Jay Wilkison (Rent, Rabbit Hole), in the New York debut of Matthew Lopez’s fascinating new play. Tony Award® winner Doug Hughes (The Royal Family, Doubt) returns to MTC to direct this extraordinary tale of loyalty, deceit and deliverance.
Three men are at a crossroads—a Jewish Confederate soldier who has returned from battle, and two former slaves, who were raised as Jews in his household. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets that might cost each man his freedom.
Approx. 2 hours including a 15min intermission.
Beginning Mar 16, Wed evening performances of The Whipping Man will begin at 7pm.
