Time Out says

Hotly-tipped US playwright Jeremy O Harris finally makes his UK debut

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.

“Daddy” was set to premiere in March 2020, and inevitably had its entire run shelved, with Harris stuck in the UK for a few months afterwards. It’s finally getting restaged almost exactly two years later. The above promotional image features David Jonsson, who was due to head it up and ended up starring in the Almeida’s ‘and breathe…’, but at present casting is TBA.
