Monday, January 21 is a day the whole nation remembers an American hero. As the theatre is inspired and moved by the words of DR. Martin Luther King, Jr., Taproot Theatre invites you to plan now to experience The Whipping Man. In honor of the day, Taproot Theatre will be offering 50% off single tickets for The Whipping Man.
To receive the discount, purchase tickets online on Monday, January 21 and use the code "MLK" at check-out for any performance of The Whipping Man.*
The Whipping Man is an evocative tale of loyalty, diversity and self-exploration. In Matthew Lopez's highly acclaimed script, a Jewish Confederate soldier and two of his former slaves are left to observe Passover together in the wake of the Civil War, prompting the challenging examination and reconciliation of the past while revealing the fear and uncertainty of venturing into a new future. This is a poignant play that The New York Times experienced as, "Haunting, striking, and powerful" and will ask questions of faith, freedom and identity.
*The MLK discount is only valid for online purchases made on Monday, January 21, 2013 for The Whipping Man. Not valid with previously purchased tickets or with any other offer. No refunds.
This play contains profanity and vivid descriptions of war and slavery. Recommended for ages 16+.
The show runs March 27-April 27 (Wednesday-Thursday, 7:30 pm; Friday-Saturday, 8 pm; Saturday matinees, 2 pm) at Taproot Theatre Company, 204 North 85th Street, Seattle, Wash.
