About

29 June - 21 September 2024
Noël Coward Theatre
St.Martin’s Lane, London
Is London Ready for Slave Play?
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.
The iconic, controversial, ground-breaking and most Tony Nominated play of all time comes to London. Fisayo Akinade, James Cusati-Moyer, Kit Harington, Aaron Heffernan, Chalia La Tour, Annie McNamara, Irene Sofia Lucio and Olivia Washington star in Jeremy O.Harris’s extraordinary play about race, identity and sexuality in twenty-first century America. Robert O’Hara directs at the intimate Noël Coward Theatre for a strictly limited and unmissable season.

“I  challenge  anyone  to  leave  Slave  Play  without  needing  to  argue  in  favour  or  against,  describe  moments,  express  solidarity  or  otherwise.  A  charismatic,  needling  theatre.  An  event.”
Independent
“Funny  as  it  is  eye  wateringly  provocative.  The  performances  in  Robert  O’Hara’s  superbly  acted  production  are  as  witty  as  the  script”
Metro
“A  sharp,  intelligent,  multi-layered  satire”
Independent
“It’s  funny,  clever  and  undoubtedly  challenging”
The Express
“Brilliantly  clever,  grotesquely  funny,  extremely  disturbing”
The Stage
“Intimate,  tender,  brave,  repellent  and  gut  wrenching”
Time Out
“Likely  to  be  the  most  talked  about  pieces  of  theatre  of  the  year”
Ajlovestheatre
“The  single  most  daring  thing  I've  seen  in  a  theater  in  a  long  time”
New York Times
“Uncomfortably  funny  and  gruesomely  sexy”
New Yorker
“The  most  radical  Broadway  play  in  years”
Chicago Tribune
“Slave  Play  offers  some  of  the  most  stunning  theatricality  of  the  year”
Washington Post
