Playwright Jeremy O. Harris is currently the talk of the town. With features in the NYTimes, GQ, Vogue and Vice, it would have been hard to miss seeing some glimpse of Harris in the news these past few months.
As Jaya Saxena puts it in her profile of Jeremy for GQ:
"Playwrights rarely become household names. But there's a good chance Jeremy O. Harris could be on his way to that kind of fame. He's 29 and still a student at the Yale School of Drama, but his Off-Broadway debut, the provocative SLAVE PLAY, opened last fall in New York to the kind of rapturous attention that a writer would happily wait a lifetime for. He quickly followed it up in March with a dazzling new production called “Daddy” and is now being hailed as one of the most exciting new voices, theatrical or otherwise, of his generation."
This is your chance to sit down with Jeremy himself and ask him questions over drinks at the hip cocktail bar Dear Irving Gramercy!
Jeremy's full length plays include: “Daddy” (Vineyard Theatre/The New Group) SLAVE PLAY (New York Theatre Workshop, New York Times Critics’ Pick, winner of the 2018 Kennedy Center Rosa Parks Playwriting Award, the Lorraine Hansberry Playwriting Award and The Lotos Foundation Prize), XANDER XYST, DRAGON: 1 and WATER SPORTS; OR INSIGNIFICANT WHITE BOYS (2019, 53rd State Press). In 2018, Jeremy co-wrote A24’s upcoming film Zola with director Janicza Bravo. He is the 11th recipient of Vineyard Theatre’s Paula Vogel Playwriting Award, a 2016 MacDowell Colony Fellow and is under commission from Lincoln Center Theater, Playwrights Horizons and Scott Rudin Productions. Jeremy’s in his third year at the Yale School of Drama
