Photo Coverage: THE WHIPPING MAN's Austin Premiere at City Theatre

Tied by faith. Bound by secrets. The City Theatre is gearing up for the start of the 2014 Season with The Whipping Man, Matthew Lopez's award-winning drama that has been recognized from coast to coast. Under the direction of guest director Stacey Glazer and starring three veterans of the CTC stage, The Whipping Man runs February 7 - March 2.

Richmond, April 1865. The Civil War has ended, and a badly wounded Confederate soldier stumbles into the ruin of what was once his home. His family has fled the city's destruction, leaving two former slaves to wait and watch. Together they care for the wounded man, and, having adopted the religion of their former owners, celebrate Passover. They soon discover that, though they are no longer tied by ownership, they remain tied by faith and history. Deep-buried secrets from the past refuse to be suppressed as the play comes to its shocking climax. It is a story about redemption and forgiveness; about the lasting scars of slavery; and the responsibility that comes with freedom.
