New York Premiere By Matthew Lopez, Directed by Doug Hughes, with Andre Braugher, Andre Holland and Jay Wilkison.
April, 1865: The Civil War has ended. Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns wounded from the battlefield to find his family home in ruins, abandoned by everyone except Simon and John, two former slaves who were raised as Jews in the DeLeon home. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover and recall the exodus from Egypt in light of their own new liberties, they uncover a tangle of secrets – ties that bind them together and that ultimately might cost each man his freedom.
