Slave Play (US edition)

By Jeremy O. Harris

Paperback £15.99

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.

Jeremy O. Harris's Slave Play rips apart history to shed new light on the nexus of race, gender, and sexuality in twenty-first-century America.

Slave Play was premiered by New York Theatre Workshop in November 2018, directed by Robert O'Hara. It opened on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre in October 2019, and was nominated for Best Play in the 2019 Lucille Lortel Awards.

Also available: the UK edition of Slave Play.
