The American Clock turns, fortunes are made and lives are broken. In New York City in 1929, the stock market crashed and everything changed.

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

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.

Director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812Hadestown) presents Arthur Miller’s play about hope, idealism and a nation’s unwavering faith in capitalism. Does The American Clock theme seem current to us now? More than ever probably.

Do not miss this visionnary play and book The American Clocks tickets at the Old Vic Theatre, London now!

Michelle Sinden28th April

Highly enjoyable. Really liked the interchanging of actors portraying the main family. Very much helped with the every person aspect of the Great Depression and other life travesties.

Marina Zographos2nd April

I was disappointed in this production - I do not think Arthur Miller intended the play to be presented in this manner. The pseudo-American accents were very difficult to understand at times and the production was far too long! However, the petite actress was extremely good with a lovely voice too!

Rosemary Chapman2nd April

The originality and creativity of this production were stimulating and exciting. Wonderful to have live music on the stage, where I was lucky enough to be sitting. A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience. Loved it.So glad I booked as I was hesitant, but although disappointed not to see Clarke Peters, an old friend from wayback...Sule RImi was great, along with the whole ensemble.

Joseph Eisenberg29th March

I could not follow the message behind the play, the music and acting was confusing and did not follow a specific consequence of events. I left after the first act.

Deirdre McAlpin28th March

Eilish Kavanagh28th March
