Cornell Professor Ross Branno Holds Free Talk at Kitchen Theatre Tonight

As part of the programming for the Kitchen Theatre's upcoming production of Matthew Lopez's play The Whipping Man, there will be a free talk by Ross Brann, Cornell University's Milton R. Konvitz Professor of Judeo-Islamic Studies. Brann will speak on Jewish immigration to the U.S. in the 19th century and Jewish involvement in the American Civil War in the South and the North at the Kitchen Theatre Company tonight, January 17th at 7:30pm.

The Whipping Man opens on January 23 and plays through February 10th. The play takes place in the final days of the Civil War, when a Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his now-destroyed Richmond home. Wounded in body and spirit, he is taken in by two former slaves - one who raised him, and one who was raised with him. As they uncover secrets from their past and begin to adjust to the new world around them, the characters grapple with the meaning of freedom. For information call 607 272-0403.
