The Pasadena Playhouse announced that they will present Matthew Lopez's multi-award winning play THE WHIPPING MAN, the fourth production of the 2014-2015 season. Watch the teaser below!

April 1865. The Civil War ends, leaving destruction in its wake. A storm rages in Richmond, Va., revealing the ruins of a once-majestic plantation home. Inside the home, three Jewish men prepare for Passover-the owner's son and his family's former slaves. Only one of them, Simon, remains strong in his faith, but it is threatened by truths about what happened in this house-and in their lives-during its antebellum days. Matthew Lopez's The Whipping Man is a compelling drama that ran away with New York's Obie, Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle awards. South Coast Repertory's production features Adam Haas Hunter, Charlie Robinson and Jarrod M. Smith. Martin Benson directs on the Julianne Argyros Stage, Jan. 4-25, 2015.
