See Billy Crudup as a charming conman with Harry Clarke play tickets

Who is Harry Clarke? Is he a cheeky, roguish Londoner? Or is he a complete fabrication? Tony and Emmy Award winner Billy Crudup (The Morning Show) delivers a magnetic, tour-de-force performance in David Cale’s wickedly funny thriller about a man who cons his way into the heart of a wealthy family. With enough twists to keep you guessing until the final moments, Crudup plays 19 roles in 80 breathtaking minutes as the acclaimed Harry Clarke play transfers to the Ambassadors Theatre, following sold-out seasons in Los Angeles and New York. 

Harry Clarke has a secret. The first thing you should know? His name isn’t Harry Clarke, but awkward Midwesterner Philip Brugglestein has worked out that a London accent and a bit of charm can cover all manner of sins… 

Earning comparisons to The Talented Mr. Ripley and Saltburn, David Cale’s Harry Clarke play is an intoxicating one-man drama that asks how deep deception can go, and how far it can be taken before the lies unravel. It premiered Off-Broadway in 2017 and after playing to sold-out crowds in the US, it is now the turn for London theatregoers to see Billy Crudup’s “masterclass” (New York Theatre Guide) solo performance in one of the West End’s most intimate venues.

Crudup makes his West End debut in Harry Clarke, and has most recently been on screen in multi-award-winning The Morning Show, for which he won a Primetime Emmy and the 2024 Critic’s Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. His other credits include Big Fish and Almost Famous

The creative team includes director Leigh Silverman, who also helmed Suffs on Broadway. 

Get ready for an unforgettable performance that you won’t be able to look away from! Billy Crudup has “the time of his life in a sly role terrifically suited to his gifts” (New York Times. It plays in London for nine weeks only, so book now to not miss out.
