The Whipping Man
Curious Theatre Company: 1/11-2/15
     Friday evening this reviewer was regaled with the most intense realism in memory at Curious Theatre’s powerful production of “The Whipping Man.”
     Co-directors Kate Folkins and Chip Walton elicited electrifying performances from their three-man cast.
     When was the last time you teared up in the first couple minutes of a production? Sean Scrutchins can teach your nerve endings to feel pain way beyond the footlights!

     Please be aware that this production has scenes involving excruciating pain, which are recommended to all lovers of serious drama who are not faint of heart.
     Sean Scrutchins is outstanding in the role of Caleb, a wounded Confederate soldier returning home to two emancipated slaves and the scorched ruins of his home.
     Stepping in at the last minute the always-excellent Cajardo Lindsey turns in a high caliber portrayal of Simon.

    Exquisitely delivered sound and lighting designs and a magnificent set add to the evening’s enjoyment.
    The “special effects” created by Todd Debreceni enhance the realistic impact.Marlowe's Musings
