The American Clock

Sule Rimi (Sweat) will be replacing Giles Terera, Rumi will perform from March, 4th.

For them the clock would never strike midnight, the dance and the music could never stop...’

The American Clock turns and with it, fortunes rise and fall. In 1929 in New York City the stock market crashed and a generation’s lives were changed. Facing an unforgiving future in a once-familiar world, we follow a broken community as they summon the courage to work out how to live.

In an exciting and unconventional staging, visionary American director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, Hadestown) transforms Arthur Miller’s adventurous play into a time-travelling reflection on the formation of modern America.

  • Strong performance of a long play!

    12 March 2019

    Having no prior knowledge of this Arthur Miller play it came as a bit of a surprise that it lacked a normal plot line and would be over three hours long. However I thought that the performances were strong throughout with some effort in the production to add some light heartedness to a story about a dark time in US history.

  • Outstanding

    Despite luke warm reviews in some papers I and a friend, both avid theatre goers, were delighted with the performances, direction,sets and music of this excellent show. An Arthur Miller fan of many years I am pleased this rare play has been made available and would urge anyone to go. The energy and talent of all the cast is infectious and Clark Peters gives yet another brilliant performance.

  • Fantastic

    What an exceptional version of The Clock. The use of music and dance heightened the awfulness of the situations forced upon people during the Depression. The staging to was effective and enabled the story line to be 'pushed' along. Thank you.
