Why See Harry Clarke?
the talented mr crudup
After a marvelously successful run in New York, Billy Crudup heads to the West End to reprise his 'tour de force performance' in David Cale's one-man thriller, as the unscrupulous Harry Clarke. Pitch dark, comic and creepy, don't miss Tony-winner Crudup in what is sure to be a theatrical highlight this spring as he embodies the nearly 20 characters that make up this multilayered portrait of the enigmatic Clarke.
What is the story?
Harry Clarke is an alter ego of ambitious midwesterner Philip. About as far as you can get from Indiana, Harry Clarke is a braggadocious Londoner who flits and flirts between cockney and posh accents in an attempt to seduce wealthy New Yorkers out of their cash. As their infatuation grows for this appealing stranger, the imposter gets a little too comfortable with his charade, endangering his con, and ultimately blurring the line between fact and fiction to reach a shattering realization.
Crudup's performance takes us through not just Philip and his Jekyll, but through the dozens of people he meets and charms along the way, slipping in and out of characters with highly praised skill. A sure-fire contender for awards season, it looks as if this surprise revival will be one of the highlights of the spring - don't miss out.
Opening night: 9 March 2024
