55 Hadley Road
At the end of the Civil War, Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns seriously wounded from the battlefield to his home in Richmond to find it in ruins. The house is empty except for Simon and John, two former slaves, raised as Jews in the DeLeon home. As the three men wait for signs of life to return to the city, they wrestle with their shared past, the bitter irony of Jewish slave-owning and the reality of the new world in which they find themselves. It is an unflinching play about redemption, forgiveness and the lasting scars of slavery.
