Slave Play tickets

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.

The sex scenes can feel gratuitous (expect some nudity), but the play raises important questions of race relations in America while wittingly poking fun at academia's overindulgence in the subject. You will definitely laugh, but sometimes it's hard to know if you're meant to take it as a joke or if the play is trying to be serious. The mirrored background ensures you're always aware not only of exactly what's happening on stage but also of the public's response to it. Forcing the audience to untangle their own reaction to the material is part of the play's genius.
