Jeremy O. Harris, the playwright behind Broadway's Slave Play, will soon be seen on the Bushwick Starr's stage in his experimental choreopoem, Black Exhibition. Harris, who is also an actor, penned the play under the pseudonym @GaryXXXFisher.
According to the Times, the Bushwick Starr—which has been a home for artists such as Clare Barron and Heather Christian—has been in talks with Harris to do the show for years, long before Slave Play catapulted the young actor-writer to fame.
Black Exhibition, which is directed by Machel Ross and will run November 6–23, asks its audience to be explicit voyeurs of an artist’s exhibitionism. The show, according to the Starr, will interrogate the limits of vulnerability, the risk of honesty, and the security of anonymity.

The production is presented by the Starr and independent film studio Makeready. Joining Harris onstage will be Ross Days, Miles Greenberg, AJ Harris, and Dhari Noel.
