The Whipping Man

Mar 16th - Apr 8th, 2012

Spencer Theatre

Box Office: 816.235.2700

Written by: Matthew Lopez
Directed By:  Eric Rosen

Fresh from its New York debut where the show was so well received it was extended three times, comes a new work rooted in the largely unknown but true history of Jewish slaveholders in the South. This extraordinary new play is a powerful exploration of lives that come unraveled as the ravages of slavery are revealed at the close of the Civil War. The Whipping Man is one of the most original and thrilling new plays on the history of race, religious identity, and what it means to be free. "Emotionally potent" - The New York Times

Appropriate for high school and up.

“An exceptional play … an exceptional production.”
 
“Rosen’s direction is nuanced, deeply emotional … physically impeccable.”

“Some of the best work I’ve seen on the Rep stage.”  (in reference to set and lighting)

“A brainy thrill ride.”

“Intellectually rich.”


The Independent – Paul Horsley:

“Eric Rosen’s sure direction … has the evening on slow boil throughout.”
