At the end of the Civil War, three men must face an unknown future in The Whipping Man, which opens at Actors Theatre on Tuesday.
The Whipping Man performances will happen on all days except Mondays from Jan. 8 - Feb. 2 at various times each day. All performances are to take place in the Bingham Theatre at Actors Theatre, located at 316 W Main Street in downtown Louisville.
Tickets vary in price and can be purchased at the Actors Theatre box office, the Actors Theatre website, or by calling the Actors Theatre box office at 502-584-1205. Keep in mind that the show is recommended for teenagers and up due to strong language and violent content.
The Whipping Man centers on three people following the Civil War. A Jewish Confederate soldier and two of his former slaves who are the only ones left in the soldier's once grand house. Together, the trio wrestle with secrets, common threads, and an unknown social order and future.
Matthew Lopez created The Whipping Man, which Meredith McDonough directed.
During The Whipping Man's run, Actors Theatre's Apprentice and Intern Company will present The Tens, a festival of ten minute plays. More information on both shows can be found at the Actors Theatre website.
