BY MATTHEW LOPEZ

February 28 – March 7, 2020
The time is in April of 1865. The Civil War is over. The slaves have been freed. Men are returning home from war. In one ravaged family home in Richmond, Va., three men sit down to observe Passover. Caleb has just returned to his family home, severely injured in the war. Simon and John, his former slaves, prepare the table with stolen wine, hardtack for matzo, and raw collards for bitter herbs. The Seder takes on a new relevance as the men seek to find their way in this new world.
