Stage and television star Charlie Robinson (NBC’s “Night Court”) plays Simon in this Obie Award-winning drama The New York Times proclaimed “haunting” and “powerful.” The production also stars Adam Haas Hunter and Jarrod M. Smith.

In the aftermath of the Civil War, a Confederate captain and his two former slaves are drawn back to the ruins of their once grand estate.  On the eve of the Passover seder, they are haunted by their scarred pasts, hit with the reality of their uncertain future, and ultimately drawn together by the strength of family.
