Upcoming Productions

A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller, HARRY CLARKE is the story of a shy midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family’s life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona. This riveting one-man play by Obie Award-winning writer David Cale (LILLIAN) and helmed by Obie Award-winning director Leigh Silverman (VIOLET) will star Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup (THE COAST OF UTOPIA, Spotlight, Vineyard’s THE METAL CHILDREN) in a tour-de-force performance.
