It stunned audiences with a sold-out run at New York Theatre Workshop. Now, Slave Play
is coming to Broadway.
The Old South lives on at the MacGregor Plantation — in the breeze, in the cotton fields… and in the crack of the whip. Nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems. Slave Play
rips apart history to shed new light on the nexus of race, gender, and sexuality in 21st-century America.
Written by Jeremy O. Harris, “one of the most promising playwrights of his generation” (Vogue
), this “dazzling mix of satire and psychodrama” (The New York Times
) is directed by two-time NAACP and OBIE Award winner Robert O’Hara.

“Subversive. Radical. Dangerously delicious. This play is lit.” - Soraya Nadia McDonald, The Undefeated
“It demands to be seen.” - Louis Peitzman, Buzzfeed
“Jeremy O. Harris’s Slave Play
offers some of the most stunning theatricality of the year.” - Peter Marks, The Washington Post
