Show details

Visionary director Rachel Chavkin makes her Old Vic debut with her revival of Arthur Miller’s groundbreaking play The American Clock, a story about hope, idealism and a nation’s unwavering faith in capitalism.

Set in New York City, the play opens just before the American stock market crash of 1929 when everything changed.  Capturing a cross-section of American life in the throes of the Great Depression, it centres on the story of the Baum family as they navigate the aftermath of an unprecedented financial crisis, moving from a thriving upper middle class family to a family battling to survive, setting their personal struggles in the broader context of a nation in crisis.

The production pulses with a soundtrack fusing 1920s period swing and jazz with a fiercely contemporary driving beat, creating a backdrop that spans a vast horizon from choking high rises to rural heartlands of a society governed by race and class.

Please note this production is not recommended for children under the ages of 11.
