Conversations Ignited by the Themes of SLAVE PLAY

In season 1, we head straight to Broadway for rich conversations with the cast and creatives of SLAVE PLAY. Written by Jeremy O. Harris and directed by Robert O’Hara, SLAVE PLAY is the most tony-nominated play in Broadway history and is often described as one of the most provocative (and controversial) plays to come to Broadway in years. Tune in to meet the people who have brought Slave Play to life, before, during, and after Broadway. You don’t want to miss this.
