“Slave Play,” the ground-breaking play by Jeremy O. Harris, will have a special eight-week return Broadway engagement at the August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street) from November 23 to January 23. Robert O’Hara directs the production.

The show, which focuses on three interracial couples, was originally seen Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop and then played for four months at Broadway’s Golden Theatre. That production earned 12 Tony Award nominations, including Best Play.

Th current cast will feature Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, Devin Kawaoka, Jonathan Chad Higginbotham, Ato Blankson-Wood, Chalia La Tour, Irene Sofia Lucio, Annie McNamara, and Paul Alexander Nolan, along with understudies Eboni Flowers, Blake Russell, Luigi Sottile, Elizabeth Stahlmann, and Galen J. Williams.

Tickets for the eight-week engagement are on sale now at or by visiting the August Wilson box office.
