“The single most daring thing I’ve seen in a theater in a long time.” — Wesley Morris, 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.

Uncomfortably funny and gruesomely sexy.--Vinson Cunningham "New Yorker" This wildly imaginative work asserts itself with a daringness rarely seen on our stages these days.-- "Hollywood Reporter" Jeremy O. Harris is the theater world's vital new voice.--Raven Smith "GQ" The most radical Broadway play in years. A shot across the bow of the Great White Way.--Chris Jones "Chicago Tribune" 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" Slave Play offers some of the most stunning theatricality of the year.--Peter Marks "Washington Post" Slave Play is funny, probing and, at times, disturbingly asks a lot of its spectators, and has a lot to give in return.--Adam Feldman "Time Out New York" [A] willfully provocative, gaudily transgressive and altogether staggering new play.-- "New York Times" Supercharged, fearsome, and terribly funny.--Sara Holdren "New York"
