Don’t Miss Slave Play Tickets - The Iconic Show Hits London

It is the most Tony Award-nominated play in Broadway history and had audiences shocked, exhilarated and astounded by its daring look at gender, sexuality and race. Now it is London theatregoers’ chance to experience Slave Play as it comes to the Noel Coward Theatre this year.

Jeremy O. Harris’ masterwork was one of the most talked-about shows of the season in New York, so book your tickets early to avoid missing out on its strictly limited West End run!

What is Slave Play about?

At the MacGregor Plantation, the Old South is alive and well. Heat rises in the air, the cotton fields and the crack of the whip. But is everything as it seems?

Provocative, controversial and groundbreaking, Slave Play is an incredible exploration of race, gender and sexuality in 21st century America as three couples experience very unconventional therapy sessions.

Earning a staggering 12 Tony Award nominations, Jeremy O. Harris’ and director Robert O’Hara’s production broke boundaries with two Broadway runs and sold-out audiences desperate to see what the buzz was about. Hailed a “dazzling mix of satire and psychodrama” by The New York Times, this is one play that has earned the label “iconic” with its no-holds-barred dissection of power and desire in our most intimate relationships.

Fisayo Akinade and Kit Harington in Slave Play

An incredible cast brings this bold show to London, including Fisayo Akinade and Kit Harington. Akinade is best known for roles in Channel 4’s Cucumber and Banana, and Sex Education on Netflix. His stage credits include Romeo and Juliet and The Glow (Royal Court Theatre).

Kit Harington is known for his leading role in Game of Thrones as Jon Snow, and has also appeared in True West and Henry V in the West End.

Akinade and Harington are joined by co-stars Aaron Heffernan and Olivia Washington, and James Cusati-Moyer, Chalia La Tour, Annie McNamara, and Irene Sofia Lucio - who reprise their roles from the original Broadway production.

At first I was wondering what I was watching, but I found the play entertaining and thought provoking. There are times when you're uncomfortable, and when you're deeply entertained. There's nothing like it on the west end. There's no interv Read more
