About Slave Play

Jeremy O. Harris's 12-time Tony-nominated show, Slave Play, which explores themes of race, power dynamics, and sexuality, comes to the West End. Book Slave Play tickets on London Theatre.

Slave Play in London boasts a talented cast, including Fisayo Akinade (Heartstopper), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Olivia Washington (I'm a Virgo), and Aaron Heffernan (Brassic). Additionally, James Cusati-Moyer (Six Degrees of Separation), Chalia La Tour (The Good Fight), Irene Sofia Lucio (The Americans), and Annie McNamara (Severance) will be reprising their roles from the Broadway run.

The show centers on three interracial couples who are part of a graduate student psychological experiment undergoing "Antebellum Sexual Performance Therapy" because the black partners have stopped feeling attraction to their white partners. Through the play, themes of race, trauma, and sexuality are explored as the legacy of slavery in the United States continues long after slavery was abolished.

"I do not take it lightly that this play is one of the rare plays by a black author that has made its way to the West End. I'm incredibly grateful for the trails blazed by the myriad black British writers recently who have broken ground for black writers and audiences on the West End like Arinzé Kene, Kwame Kwei-Armah, Tyrell Williams, Ryan Calais Cameron, and Natasha Gordon. I hope that with this production even more work by writers of colour will find support on our largest commercial stages," Harris said.

Harris wrote Slave Play during his first year at Yale School of Drama. The show was first staged Off-Broadway in November 2018 and opened on Broadway in October 2019. At the 74th Tony Awards, Slave Play received an impressive 12 Tony nominations, at the time breaking the record for the most Tony nominations for a non-musical play. However, in 2024, Stereophonic broke that record.
