Wednesday, June 22 through Friday, June 24 at 8 p.m.
The Robert Shackleton Playhouse, 405 Lafayette St., Cape May
The Whipping Man by Matthew Lopez takes place in Richmond, Va. in April 1865. The Civil War is over and Caleb Deleon, a Jewish Confederate officer is home after being severely wounded. His two former slaves care for him on the last night of Passover-the ancient celebration of the freeing of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt, noting with particular satisfaction the parallels to their current situation. But the pain of their enslavement will not be soothed by this tradition, and deep buried secrets from the past refuse to be hidden forever as the play comes to its shocking climax. Admission $38 adults; $33 seniors (62+); $18 students and active duty military. For more information, call (609) 884-5404 or (800) 275-4278, or visit www.capemaymac.org.
