A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller starring Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the titular cocky Londoner.

Harry Clarke was originally produced by the Vineyard Theatre, in association with Audible, in New York in 2017. In a rave review of the stage production, The New York Times hails Crudup's performance as "a sly role terrifically suited to his gifts." And The Hollywood Reporter praised Crudup's "tour-de-force performance; effortlessly delineating his multiple characters, switching accents at the drop of a hat."
"One of the meta-delights of Harry Clarke is the way it applies the idea of performance to regular life. As Harry proves, we're all actors, working with whatever rickety materials we've got. If only we were all as good at impersonation as he and Mr. Crudup are, we might even be happy." (The New York Times)
"David Cale is a mischievous, deft and engaging storyteller." (Variety)
“Lillian is a luminous embodiment of the ineffable in life, a reminder that even the most mundane existence is shaped by currents beyond comprehension.” (The New York Times)
