The American Clock

The American Clock

The Old Vic, London, SE1 8NB
  • Visionary director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Hadestown) presents Arthur Miller’s The American Clock at The Old VicClarke Peters (The Wire, Five Guys Names Moe) plays Robertson/Moe 3/Taylor in the production until 2 March. Sule Rumi (Sweat, Barber Shop Chronicles) takes over the roles from 4 to 30 March.
    '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.
    Don't miss Arthur Miller's ground-breaking play about hope, idealism and a nation’s unwavering faith in capitalism.
    At The Old Vic from 4 February to 30 March 2019, book your The American Clock tickets today!
