Slave Play

Slave Play to run at the Noël Coward Theatre

Empire Street Productions (Prima Facie and The Pillowman, West End), Seaview (Parade and Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Broadway), and bb² are thrilled to announce the UK premiere of Slave Play by Jeremy O. Harris (Daddy, Almeida Theatre; Euphoria, HBO), directed by Robert O’Hara (OBIE award-winning In The Continuum). This ground-breaking and controversial play about race, identity and sexuality in twenty-first-century America will play a strictly limited season from 29 June – 21 September 2024 at the intimate Noël Coward Theatre. Tickets go on sale today to priority bookers at 12pm and then on general sale from 10am 28 February 2024 at www.slaveplaylondon.com

Slave PlayThe cast will include Fisayo Akinade (The Crucible, National Theatre; Heartstopper, Netflix), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones, HBO; True West, West End), Aaron Heffernan (Brassic, Sky; Atlanta, FX), Olivia Washington (I Am Virgo, Amazon Prime; Breaking, Bleecker Street) alongside James Cusati-Moyer (Six Degrees of Separation, Broadway; Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix), Chalia La Tour (The Good Fight; Elementary, both CBS), Annie McNamara (Orange is the New Black, Netflix; Iowa, Playwrights Horizons) and Irene Sofia Lucio (The Americans, FX; Wit, Broadway) who will reprise their roles from the original Broadway production.

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.

Slave Play was originally staged in 2018 at New York Theatre Workshop before transferring to Broadway’s John Golden Theatre in 2019. The production received 12 nominations at the 74th Tony Awards, breaking the record previously set by the revival of Angels in America to become the most Tony-nominated play of all time.
