Concord Theatricals has secured the exclusive worldwide licensing rights to “Slave Play.”
The play will initially be released to professional theaters through Concord Theatricals’ Samuel French imprint. “Slave Play,” which opened on Broadway in October 2019, is nominated for 12 Tony Awards and recently announced the creation of a new play collection featuring Black playwrights.
“Knowing that ‘Slave Play,’ a work written with friends and small theatres in mind, is joining the work of idols like Adrienne Kennedy and Caryl Churchill at Concord Theatricals is still overwhelmingly humbling,” said playwright Jeremy O. Harris. “In a time when the complexities of the Black American experience are being discoursed by citizens all around the world it is invigorating to know that my work will sit beside peers like Aleshea Harris and Antoinette Nwandu in deepening the global understanding of the Black American identity and our theatrical traditions.”
