Teyonah Parris  "Slave Play" at New York Theatre Workshop

Last night was absolutely magical!! #SlavePlay @nytw79 marks my return to the stage for the first time in 8 years and i must say the journey has been terrifying, frustrating, menacing, and extaordinarily exhilarating all at once!! Thank you @jeremyoharris for your bold work and unapologetic voice. Thank you, Jeremy and Robert, for trusting me with "Kaneisha". Thank you to my amazingly and ridiculously talented cast mates who show up everyday sharing their full selves and kicking ass on that stage every night- 8 shows a week. Most of all, thank you to my Tribe (not all pictured) for being the best support, for your endless overflow of love, for being my bang bang encouragement gang, for the long hugs, and for always having tissues on deck. I love yall. This is the stuff dreams are made of- this is the stuff MY dreams are made of and I'm living it. Immensely grateful for every bit of this moment. πŸ™πŸΎπŸ–€πŸ™πŸΎπŸ–€

Walking into my own personal New Year. Seeing how far I've come, what I still need to work on, and calling forth what hasn't yet revealed itself. All with my tribe by my side. I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams.
