By Matthew Lopez

A gripping, award winning, post-Civil War drama.

The Civil War has ended, but for some, the struggle has just begun. A Jewish Confederate soldier, wounded in war, has returned from the battlefield to find that his family has fled. The only remaining household members are two former slaves, who have been raised by his family as Jews. Over a celebratory feast, family history is uncovered and dark secrets are revealed, forcing the men to come to terms with the sordid legacies of slavery and war that threaten each of their future freedoms.

“Filled with fine characterization and unexpected moments of humor.”THE NEW YORK TIMES
