Slave Play Tickets

Jeremy O. Harris’ record-breaking show returns to Broadway for eight weeks only. Now the most Tony Award-nominated play in history, Slave Play explores the intersection of race, sexuality and gender across US history.

Jeremy O. Harris’ sensational play returns

After earning a record-breaking 12 Tony Award nominations, Jeremy O. Harris’ hit play returns to New York for a strictly limited run of eight weeks. 

Exploring race, sexuality and gender, the show follows three interracial couples undergoing therapy. In the shadow of the MacGregor Plantation, Slave Play tears through past and present to confront the intersection of power and desire in 21st century America.

Harris wrote Slave Play as a graduate student at Yale School of Drama, and its 2019 transfer to the Golden Theatre marked his Broadway debut. His other credits include Daddy with Alan Cumming.

Director Robert O’Hara returns, after earning a Tony Award nomination for Slave Play’s first Broadway season. 

Ato Blankson-Wood, Chalia La Tour, Irene Sofia Lucio, Annie McNamara, and Paul Alexander Nolan, who starred in the play's previous New York runs, also return. Antoinette Crowe-Legacy joins them as Kaneisha, a role Harris wrote for her and which she originated in workshops.  

Hailed as a “dazzling mix of satire and psychodrama” (The New York Times), book Slave Play tickets to experience the show that shook up Broadway.
