Slave Play in London: tickets, prices and more for West End run

Jeremy O. Harris is bringing the Slave Play to London’s West End for the first time – and tickets go on sale soon.

The show will open at Noel Coward Theatre on 29 June, with a new “US x UK” cast confirmed alongside ticket on-sale dates and times.

The West End production of Slave Play will star Kit Harrington, Fisayo Akinade, Aaron Heffernan and Olivia Washington.

The four newcomers join James Cusati-Moyer, Chalia La Tour, Annie McNamara and Irene Sofia Lucio, who starred in the original Broadway production.

The play, which follows three interracial couples undergoing “Antebellum Sexual Performance Therapy” because the black partners no longer feel sexual attraction to their white partners, premiered on Broadway in September 2019.

It deals with race, sex, power relations and trauma and received polarizing reviews upon its debut.

The New Yorker called it “uncomfortably funny and gruesomely sexy”, while the Chicago Tribune dubbed it “the most radical Broadway play in years”.

The show went on to receive 12 nominations at the Tony Awards, breaking the record for most nominations for a non-musical play.

It’s been confirmed that the West End production will include standard and premium ticketing options, as well as various accessible options.

This includes tickets for as little as £1 released every Wednesday morning, and two Black Out nights on 17 July an 17 September for Black audience members only.
