CAMDEN — Twelve characters plus 25 monologues will add up to one rollicking good time when professional actor Richard Clark returns to Camden in “The Lunatic, the Lover and the Poet: Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits,” to be presented 2-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, at Camden Public Library.
Offered as part of Quarry Hill’s “Adventures in Living Well” series for adults ages 55 and older and co-sponsored by the library, the one-man show will be the latest in a string of portrayals of well-known figures by Clark. The thespian’s earlier appearances in Camden have centered on Ernest Hemingway and John Barrymore. In a 30-year career spanning live theater and television, Clark has appeared in “The Kennedys of Massachusetts,” “Saturday Night Live,” the daytime serials “Guiding Light” and “As the World Turns,” and numerous regional theater productions.
Admission to Clark’s performance will be free, but registration is required. Call Quarry Hill at 230-6114 to reserve seats.
Clark will transform himself into Clarence Darrow, the attorney whose involvement in the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial and passionate pleas for social justice endeared him to millions, at 6:30 p.m. June 7 at Camden Public Library. Admission to “Clarence Darrow” is free and open to all. For more information, call Camden Public Library at 236-3440.
