'The single most daring thing I've seen in a theater in a long time' ~ New York Times

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

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

Slave Play premiered by New York Theatre Workshop in November 2018

It opened on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre in October 2019, and was nominated for Best Play in the 2019 Lucille Lortel Awards


"The most radical Broadway play in years" ~ Chicago Tribune

'Uncomfortably funny and gruesomely sexy' ~ New Yorker

"Supercharged, fearsome, and terribly funny" ~ Sara Holdren - "New York"

"Jeremy O. Harris is the theater world's vital new voice" ~ Raven Smith "GQ "

"[A] willfully provocative ... altogether staggering new play" ~ New York Times

"Slave Play offers some of the most stunning theatricality of the year" ~ Peter Marks - Washington Post

"This wildly imaginative work asserts itself with a daringness rarely seen on our stages these days" ~ Hollywood Reporter

"Slave Play is funny, probing and, at times, disturbingly sexy .. it asks a lot of its spectators, and has a lot to give in return" ~ Adam Feldman "Time Out New York "

"This is a demanding play, and one of the things that it demands is the audience's discomfort. But that discomfort is productive -- and in the end, it brings its own satisfactions. It creates a space in which the messiness and rawness of race and power and fantasy and trauma can unspool into a chaotic churn of impressions" ~ Vox
