Le Grand Mort at Trafalgar Studios starring Julian Clary.
British icon Julian Clary will star in the world premiere of Stephen Clark’s black comedy Le Grand Mort.
Written specifically of Julian Clary by by four-time Olivier Award nominated Stephen Clark (Martin Guerre, Zorro, Love Story, Stripped), Le Grand Mort is a funny, dark and beautifully written new play.
Le Grand Mort will run from 20 September 2017 until 28 October 2017 at Trafalgar Studios.
In his sterile, super stylish Notting Hill kitchen, Michael prepares dinner for two.
Meticulously cutting vegetables with surgeon like precision, he talks, with knife-like wit, about cases in history where the human body has continued to prove useful even after death.
Slicing and chopping, one wonders who is coming for dinner and what the main course might be.
When his young guest arrives, they engage in a series of funny, thrilling but searingly dangerous mind games, as they try to unravel the reasons why they are both there.
Only when the games turn deadly do they catch a glimpse of the sadness and loss within each of them, that enables them to at least begin to connect with the truth.
Comedian, Entertainer and writer Julian Clary will co-star with James Nelson-Joyce.
Directed by Christopher Renshaw with design by Justin Nardella and lighting by Jamie Platt.
