'For them the clock would never strike midnight, the dance and the music could never stop...'
The American Clock turns, fortunes are made and lives are broken. In New York City in 1929, the stock market crashed and everything changed.
In an American society governed by race and class, we meet the Baum family as they navigate the aftermath of an unprecedented financial crisis. The world pulses with a soundtrack fusing 1920s swing and jazz with a fiercely contemporary sound, creating a backdrop that spans a vast horizon from choking high rises to rural heartlands.
Visionary director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Hadestown) presents Arthur Miller's ground-breaking play about hope, idealism and a nation's unwavering faith in capitalism.
Cast Update: Clarke Peters (The Wire, Five Guys Names Moe) will be joining the cast of The American Clock to play Robertson/Moe 3/Taylor in the production until 2 March replacing Giles Terera. Sule Rumi (Sweat, Barber Shop Chronicles) takes over the roles from 4 to 30 March 2019.
