A sexually charged and wickedly funny one-man thriller, Harry Clarke, by acclaimed playwright and solo artist David Cale (Lillian, A Likely Story) starring BSC Associate Artist Mark H. Dold (BSC’s Breaking the Code, Freud’s Last Session) is the story of a shy midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. 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.

Pittsfield Prospers hosts an Inter-generational Community Conversation
Thursday, July 16, 6 to 7:30 pm

Join this community conversation to explore how our recent common experience with the pandemic has created an opportunity to move our community forward together in new and positive ways. Some of us saw the social and economic upheaval triggered by the departure of General Electric almost four decades ago, others have only heard about it. We can rewrite Pittsfield’s story if we combine the lessons of the past with the energy and vision of younger people.
