Photo Flash: First Look at Syracuse Stage's THE WHIPPING MAN, Now Playing

Richmond, April, 1865. The Civil War has ended and Caleb DeLeon, 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, Simon and John, to wait and watch. Together they care for the wounded Caleb, and having adopted the religion of their former owners, celebrate Passover. A mesmerizing drama where secrets are revealed and the plot twists and turns. Since opening off-Broadway to critical acclaim and winning the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play, The Whipping Man has become one of the most produced plays in the country.

The Whipping Man performs through February 16 in the Archbold Theatre at the Syracuse Stage/Drama Complex. It is recommended for ages 13 and up due to mature subject matter. Tickets can be purchased online atwww.SyracuseStage.org, by phone at 315-443-3275, or in person at the Syracuse Stage Box Office at 820 East Genesee Street. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more at 315-443-9844.

Pre-and post-show events during the run of The Whipping Man include the Opening Night Party on January 31 with live music, Wednesday @ 1 Lecture on February 5 ("Jews and the Civil War" with Samuel D. Gruber, Ph.D, Rothman Family Lecturer in Judaic Studies at Syracuse University), Happy Hour on February 6 (with half price drinks and complimentary snacks), an Actor Talkback following the 7 p.m. show on February 9, and Prologues (moderated discussions with actors) on February 2, February 8, and February 13.)
