Token Theatre Friends: Jeremy O. Harris Is Ready to Take Over the World

The Friends welcome the writer of ‘Slave Play,’ ‘Daddy,’ and ‘Black Exhibition’ to talk about sex and social media.

Twice a month on the Token Theatre Friends video series and podcast, theatre critics (and theatre besties) Jose Solís and Diep Tran bring a POC perspective to the performing arts.

We’re just doing an interview this week, and it’s extra-long—but for good reason. The Friends talk to the prolific Jeremy O. Harris, who has been called the enfant terrible of the American theatre. He discusses both the controversy and love around Slave Play (currently running on Broadway), being naked in his newest play Black Exhibition at the Bushwick Starr, and how he uses social media to get new audiences to the theatre. And if you’re across the pond, his play “Daddy” is opening next spring in London!

The audio of the interview is available here.
