About This Show


Jeremy O. Harris’s Slave Play, the acclaimed production that “reimagines the possibilities of what theater can give us” (The New York Times) is returning to Broadway for a limited engagement beginning November 23. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the groundbreaking play that rips open history at the intersection of race, love, sex, and sexuality in 21st-century America.

Over one explosive weekend, three interracial couples inhabit the confines of a sprawling Southern plantation. As the heat is turned up on their volatile relationships, the line between fantasy and reality blurs and history begins to repeat itself. In this “ballsy, ferociously funny work” (Hollywood Reporter) by Jeremy O. Harris, biting satire and dark humor couple with righteous anger and raw sensuality to create “one of the best and most provocative new works to show up on Broadway in years” (The New York Times).
