Sally & Tom


Directing SALLY & TOM with Steve H. Broadnax III | The Public Theater
Martinson Hall March 28 - June 2, 2024 2 hours and 35 minutes, including intermission

New York Premiere

By Suzan-Lori Parks 
Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III
In Association with The Guthrie Theater

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, the author of last season’s The Harder They Come, returns to her artistic home with an edgy dramedy that celebrates the craft of theater while taking a hard look at history.

The off-off-off-Broadway theater troupe Good Company is putting on a play about Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson. Writer Luce is cast as Sally; her romantic partner, and the play’s director, Mike, is cast as Tom—really, people, what could possibly go wrong?

In association with Minneapolis’s acclaimed Guthrie Theater,
this funny, ferocious new work is about art, politics, and the contradictions that make all of us. Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III, SALLY & TOM is an unmissable New York premiere from one of our finest and most daring playwrights.
