In its second play of the 2015-2016 season, Prospect Theater Project brings a slice of Civil War-era Virginia to the Modesto stage with Mathew Lopez's play "The Whipping Man." To match the play's setting, we shot the cast photos in the style of old tintypes.
According to Prospect, the show "is the story of three men in Richmond, VA at the end of the Civil War. Two are former slaves, waiting in an empty house for the former owners to return; the third, a wounded confederate soldier. The three men wrestle with their shared past, the bitter irony of Jewish slave-owning and the reality of the new world in which they find themselves as the last night of Passover sets on this Jewish home."
"The Whipping Man" opens tonight and runs through December 13th. Don't miss this one, folks!
