Harry Clarke grew up in Idaho. He is not comfortable as himself. When he puts on an English accent he becomes very confident. Harry moves to New York City after his parents die. When he meets people he is from London.
On a whim he decides to follow someone. He learns some things about this person. By chance they meet; he uses the information he heard when he followed him to make it seem like they have formerly met.
They become friends. His new friend is wealthy. Harry gets to meets his whole family.
Billy plays all of the seven characters. We learn about him and the people in his life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful play.
Billy did not miss a beat from one character to another. He did an amazing job.
This one act play will hold your attention from the beginning to end.
