About

Jeremy O. Harris, “a major new voice in the American theater” (Chicago Tribune), brings to Broadway the “raw, revelatory, and revolutionary play” (The Daily Beast) that stunned audiences with a sold-out run at New York Theatre Workshop. Directed by two-time NAACP and Obie Award® winner Robert O’Hara, SLAVE PLAY is “one of the best and most provocative new works to show up on Broadway in years” (The New York Times).

At the MacGregor Plantation, nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems. It’s an antebellum fever-dream as three interracial couples converge to rip open history at the intersection of race, love, sex, and sexuality in 21st-century America. Don’t miss this production that “reimagines the possibilities of what theater can give us” (The New York Times).
