Slave Play on Broadway Background
Slave Play is an exciting and powerful play written by Jeremy O. Harris, a playwright who has made a name for himself through several off-broadway successes. His shows often center around sexually intimate couples thrust into socially unacceptable situations. This can be seen in his previous play Daddy, which follows a heterosexual man who is seduced by a male artist and must come to terms with his newly found sexuality and family issues. Before Slave Play made its Broadway debut, it made its world premiere off-broadway in the NYTW Theatre on 4th Street in NYC. The short lived performance was met with critical acclaim, enough so to warrant a full fledged adaptation for the Broadway stage. Slave Play features the Broadway debut of award winning director Robert O’Hara, the same man responsible for directing the off-broadway rendition of the play. O’Hara broke into the industry with his first play Insurrection: Holding History, which went on to win him the Oppenheimer Award for “Best New American Play”. More recently O’Hara received a Lambda Literary Award for “LGBT Drama” for his play Bootycandy, that is an anthology show centered around the struggle of being a black gay man in America in the 21st Century.
What’s Slave Play Like?
Slave Play is a three act play following the sexual frenzy of three interracial couples set on the MacGregor Plantation near Richmond, Virginia in 1859. The first couple introduced includes a slave girl, Kaneisha, and her white overseer, Jim. Kaneisha is reserved and slightly frightened while in Jim’s presence, but Jim attempts to set her mind at ease. The two soon develop a mutual love for each other and a sexual relationship develops. The affair soon begins to reflect the societal roles that both parties were born in to and those are the true chains of bondage. The second couple involves the white mistress of the plantation, Alana, and her personal slave, Philip. Alana often demands that Philip play her traditional african music on a violin, but she quickly becomes more forward, putting Philip in sexually demeaning positions for her perverse pleasure. The final couple involves a white indentured servant named Dustin, and the black slave in charge of him, Gary. Their sexual relationship develops as the two come to terms with their own sexuality and the reverse societal relationship they have been placed in. Though all three affairs are fairly independent of each other, they all share similar thematic narratives of fear and desire culminating into a dangerous relationship at the Master’s House.
