"Meet Jeremy O. Harris: The Queer Black Savior the Theater World Needs." So read a recent headline in Out magazine; Vogue anointed him "one of the most promising playwrights of his generation." The hype is understandable. Though still in his final semester at Yale Drama School, Harris has had two plays in production Off Broadway this past season. "Daddy," the second, stars Alan Cumming and Ronald Peet. Joining him on our very own stage to discuss his work and career will be cultural critic Emily Bobrow, who observed in the Economist that Harris writes about race and sexuality "with humour, intellectual rigour, nods to pop culture and an engaging sense of spectacle," asking audiences to confront their own complicity in prejudice.
