CORONAVIRUS: Latest updates here.
Fears, dreams, and desires intertwine in this explosive new play by Jeremy O. Harris, now returning to Broadway after a critically acclaimed run at the New York Theatre Workshop last year. Following the lives of six people staying on the MacGregor Plantation, Slave Play holds up a magnifying glass to history and in turn explores race, gender, and sexuality in 21st Century America.
Robert O'Hara returns to direct the transfer and will mark both his and O. Harris' Broadway debuts. Written whilst O. Harris was in his first semester at the Yale School of Drama's graduate playwriting program, Slave Play is already the recipient of many an accolade including; the Rosa Parks Playwriting Award, the Lorraine Hansberry Playwriting Award, The Lotos Foundation Prize in the Arts and Sciences, and the 2018 Paula Vogel Award.
This scintillating Broadway return is sure to be the most talked-about production of the season. Don't miss your chance to see it in its limited eight-week run!

Challenging interesting INNOVATIVE
Harris has taken this audience for a wild one-night stand, he has raised a voice from the past and given permission to the all in the present, suggesting our healing is in our passion, our pain, our pleasure, and our power.
This play is craving your attention and if you step into the dungeon, Harris has you handcuffed to the bedpost, tickling and teasing with his language as much as he whips and chokes with its themes.Read full review
