The Vineyard Theatre has announced a one-week extension for the world premiere of Harry Clarke by David Cale. The monologue play, directed by Leigh Silverman, will begin previews October 26 and will now play through December 8.
In Harry Clarke, stage and screen actor Billy Crudup stars as a shy, Midwestern man who lives a double life as an outrageous, highbrow Londoner who has recently moved to New York City.
The new play is billed by the Off-Broadway theatre as being a “sexually charged and wickedly funny one-man thriller.” The show will open November 21.
“We are delighted that audiences will have an additional week to see Billy Crudup in David Cale's riveting new play,” commented Vineyard Artistic Directors Douglas Aibel and Sarah Stern in a press statement. “The Vineyard has long had a history of experimenting with the form and content of the solo show, from our acclaimed original productions of Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar And Grill and Fully Committed, to Colman Domingo’s A Boy And His Soul and Polly Pen and Victor Lodato’s Arlington. Harry Clarke continues this tradition, and we are excited that this extension will allow more people to experience this very special production.”
The design team for Harry Clarke includes scenic designer Alexander Dodge (A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder, Anastasia), costume designer Kaye Voyce (Significant Other), lighting designer Alan C. Edwards (Zoohouse), and sound designer Bart Fasbender (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson). Original music is composed by playwright Cale.
Harry Clarke was previously scheduled to play through December 3.
