Inhaltsangabe

"Finding laugh-out-loud humor, mischief, and angst in every line, stage and film stalwart Billy Crudup has a wonderful time telling the story of a young Midwesterner who dons a fake English accent and moves to the big city in search of sexual misadventure. Bright and manic, fresh and graphic, playwright David Cale specializes in full-length staged monologues and has garnered quite a reputation in the theater world. As a bonus, Cale performs his own Tony Award-winning play, Lillian. Both monologues are directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman and create a perfect synthesis between the energy of live theater and the intimacy of audiobook listening. Beautifully written. Beautifully performed. A wonderful aural experience. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award." (AudioFile magazine)

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. 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.

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."

Kritikerstimmen

"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)
