Season Event

An emotional and mesmerizing drama, The Whipping Man provides powerful insight into the human condition. Set in war-ravaged Virginia, a Jewish Confederate soldier and two freed slaves face the harsh reality of post-Civil War life. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets that could cost each man his freedom. (contains strong language and a graphic scene)
