THE GAME-CHANGING LANDMARK PLAY DIRECT FROM BROADWAY

Slave Play awakens the Mark Taper Forum with a jolt.

It's the most Tony Award®-nominated play in history. It stunned off-Broadway. Then it shocked Broadway. Now, Jeremy O. Harris, “a major new voice in the American theater” (Chicago Tribune), brings his “raw, revelatory, and revolutionary play” (The Daily Beast) to the Taper, in the same production that roiled New York. Directed by two-time NAACP and Obie Award® winner Robert O’Hara, Slave Play is “one of the best and most provocative new works to show up in years” (The New York Times).

At the MacGregor Plantation, nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems. It’s an antebellum fever-dream as three interracial couples converge to rip open history at the intersection of race, love, and sexuality in 21st-century America. It's a world where the sex is as raw as the emotions, and the twists as salacious as the truth. Don’t dare shy away from this production that “reimagines the possibilities of what theatre can give us” (The New York Times).

[A] revelatory, potentially game-changing piece of theater.

No theatrical work in recent memory has had the seismic impact of Jeremy O. Harris’ Slave Play

[Jeremy O.] Harris and [Robert] O’Hara understand the power of silence and stillness.
