Christopher Boy's Communion coming to BBC Radio
Last year, we learned that Clark Gregg was recording his scenes from his 2020 theater play "The Christopher Boy's Communion" in which he played the character, Alan. This play was written and directed by the famous David Mamet. He starred alongside Mamet's wife, Rebbeca Pidgeon, William H. Macy, David Paymer, Fionnula Flanagan & John Pirrucello.
Mamet decided that a voiced copy of the theater play would be recorded last summer for BBC Radio. We just found out that on March 8th, 2021 @ 2:15 pm GMT, this play will debut. We will have the play featured on our website.
The featured description is as followed:
Martin Jarvis directs the British premiere of David Mamet’s brand-new thriller, set in New York City.
Joan (Rebecca Pidgeon) is a devout Catholic and a mother, whose son Michael has mutilated the body of his nice Jewish girlfriend. He awaits trial in prison. Joan will stop at nothing to free him, even blackening the dead girl’s character. In a series of gripping encounters, Joan attempts to persuade her husband Alan (Clark Gregg), Jewish lawyer Mr. Stone (David Paymer) and priest (John Pirruccello) to do her deadly bidding. She even tries blackmail. This present-day, churchgoing Lady Macbeth is driven by her misguided views on intermarriage. Mysterious Mrs. Charles (Tony-award nominee Fionnula Flanagan) might provide a solution to Michael’s freedom by inspiring Joan’s own capacity for belief, and the strength of her maternal instinct. Then, an extraordinary, thought-provoking final twist in this thrilling and provocative drama.
This is Jarvis & Ayres' seventh collaboration with David Mamet. They produced his Keep Your Pantheon (R4), Glengarry Glen Ross (R3), Faust (R3) all directed by Rosalind Ayres. Martin Jarvis appeared in Mamet’s movie Phil Spector (HBO) and Funny Or Die (Comedy Central).

You can also expect to see Clark Gregg on your screen on March 3, 2021 as he stars in new Netflix film, Moxie.
When asked about his upcoming film Moxie, Clark said:
"Moxie is a really delightful comedy that Amy Poehler directed and I’m just such a huge fan of hers. It’s really about a mother and a daughter, she played the mother and I got to play her new boyfriend that her daughter has some issues with. I thought it was a really delightful script and I just think she would do no wrong. I was thrilled to get to work with her simultaneously as an actor and to be directed by her."
