The production also marks a collaboration between the Vineyard and the spoken-word entertainment company Audible; the partnership will include recording a performance and producing it as an audio play, to be made available to Audible members in 2018.

Crudup earned a Tony Award in 2007 for his performance in The Coast of Utopia. He received previous nominations for the 2002 revival of The Elephant Man, The Pillowman, and in the 2011 revival of Arcadia. He has since appeared on Broadway in the repertory productions of Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land. Harry Clarke marks his third show at the Vineyward, following The Metal Children and America Dreaming.

The comedy follows a shy Midwestern man—and his double life as the titular highbrow Londoner. Upon moving to New York, he passes off as a brash Englishman in order to become a part of the lifestyle of the elite.
