Presented by the KC Rep: Don’t miss the opportunity to see The Whipping Man!
Closes April 8th at the Spencer Theatre, UMKC’s Olsen Performing Arts Center.
Fresh from its extended New York debut comes an extraordinary new work that is rooted in the largely unknown but true history of Jewish slaveholders in the South. The Whipping Man is a powerful exploration of lives that come unraveled as the devastation of slavery is revealed at the close of the Civil War. Described as “emotionally potent” by The New York Times, The Whipping Man is one of the most original and thrilling news plays about the history of race, religious identity and what it means to be free.
