Harry Clarke is the story of a shy
midwestern man who feels more himself when adopting the persona of
cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York and presenting
himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family’s
life, romancing two family members as the seductive and sexually
precocious Harry, with more on his mind than love. With his
spellbinding and emotionally nuanced storytelling, Cale has created a
riveting story of a man leading an outrageous double life.
Inspired by her experiences in Paris
at the famed Père Lachaise Cemetery—the final resting place of such
legendary artists as Richard Wright and Jim Morrison—award-winning
playwright/performer Dael Orlandersmith explores the strange way we
form powerful bonds with people who, though unrelated to us by blood,
come to feel like family. Orlandersmith investigates the complex
legacy she received from her mother—a legacy of bitterness, abuse,
and frustration, but also of poetry, music, and art.
