The most Tony-nominated play of all time comes to London as Jeremy O. Harris’ Slave Play opens at the Noel Coward Theatre this summer.

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.

Who’s on the cast?

The cast of Slave Play in the West End 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.

During the run of Slave Play there will be two BLACK OUT nights on 17 July and 17 September. BLACK OUT nights are the purposeful creation of an environment in which an all-Black-identifying audience can experience and discuss an event in the performing arts, film, athletic, and cultural spaces – free from the white gaze.

Slave Play will be designed by Clint Ramos, with costume by Dede Ayite, lighting by Jiyoun Chang and composition and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
