At the MacGregor Plantation the Old South is alive and well. The heat in the air, the cotton fields – and the power of the whip. Yet nothing is quite as it appears... or maybe it is.

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.

Iconic, controversial and groundbreaking, it opened at New York Theatre Workshop in 2018, transferred to Broadway the following year, and was nominated for twelve Tony Awards.

It received its British premiere at the Noël Coward Theatre in London's West End in 2024, directed by Robert O'Hara.

Also available: the original UK edition of Slave Play.

'How to explain Harris? He is like Tennessee Williams, if Williams had been Prince. Or Truman Capote, if Capote had been Paradise Garage. He is a firebrand writer with whipcrack humour. He has two brilliant plays under his belt, Slave Play and Daddy. He is such a queer hero of our times that the New York neighbourhood he lives in has become fleetingly famous. One of Jeremy O. Harris's plays coming to London is a major event' Evening Standard
