Broadway's 'Slave Play' Announces Casting, Including Paul Alexander Nolan & Joaquina Kalukango

The acclaimed play Slave Play is heading to Broadway for a limited engagement this fall and the official casting was just announced.

Seven out of the eight lead cast members from the off-Broadway production – Ato Blankson-Wood, James Cusati-Moyer, Sullivan Jones, Chalia La Tour, Irene Sofia Lucio, Annie McNamara, and Paul Alexander Nolan – will reprise their roles for the Broadway transfer.

Joaquina Kalukango will create the role of Kaneisha for the Broadway production. Teyonah Parris played the role in the off-Broadway run, but she’ll be busy working on her upcoming Marvel series WandaVision.

Jeremy O. Harris wrote the play and garnered tons of acclaim during its off-Broadway run. Here is the full synopsis: “The Old South lives on at the MacGregor Plantation — in the breeze, in the cotton fields…and in the crack of the whip. It’s an antebellum fever-dream, where fear and desire entwine in the looming shadow of the Master’s House. Jim trembles as Kaneisha handles melons in the cottage, Alana perspires in time with the plucking of Phillip’s fiddle in the boudoir, while Dustin cowers at the heel of Gary’s big, black boot in the barn. Nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is as it seems.”

Slave Play begins previews on September 10 ahead of an official opening night on October 6. The production will run for just 17 weeks.

Teyonah Parris Celebrates Opening of Off-Broadway's 'Slave Play'

Teyonah Parris poses in a blue suit while celebrating the opening night of her new Off-Broadway show Slave Play on Sunday (December 9) at B Bar and Grill in New York City.

The 31-year-old actress, best known for Mad Men and Survivor’s Remorse, was joined at the event by co-star Paul Alexander Nolan, among others.

The new play by Jeremy O. Harris “rips apart history to shed new light on the nexus of race, gender and sexuality in 21st century America.” The play has been receiving some rave reviews and everyone says to not read anything about it before seeing the show, so we’re going to leave it at that!

Slave Play
is running now through January 13 at the New York Theatre Workshop.

FYI: Teyonah is wearing a Jeffrey Dodd jacket and pants.
