The Whipping Man: In this Gorilla Theatre play, three men — one white, two black — reunite to celebrate Passover in Virginia just after the Civil War, where they uncover a tangle of secrets that might cost each man his freedom.

To watch

SERIES PREMIERE Frozen Planet, 8 p.m., Discovery: Alec Baldwin narrates a show about life at the poles. That's a nice change from cable news' obsession with life at the polls.

SEASON FINALE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC: After an entire season of camping out in the open at a Georgia farm, the gang finally remembers they're on a zombie show and must survive an onslaught of the undead. We went from endless debate to nonstop mutilation in only three episodes!
