Hotly-tipped US playwright Jeremy O Harris makes his UK debut with this ‘melodrama’ about the relationship between a black artist and a white collector

Another feather in the cap for the Almeida, which bags the UK debut for US playwright Jeremy O Harris, whose wildly controversial ‘Slave Play’ was the talk of Broadway in 2019. It’ll be interesting to see when that particular hot potato is ready for the UK; in fact, though written first, Harris’s "Daddy" is a play that premiered after ‘Slave Play’, to less warm notices, although don’t let that put you off. Directed by Danya Taymor, who directed the off-Broadway production, "Daddy" depicts a corrosive relationship between a young black artist and an older white art collector. It’s not technically billed as a transfer, but design is by Matt Saunders, whose infinity pool set was quite the talking point in the original production.
