Director: Rachel Chavkin; Written by: Arthur Miller
When the American clock turned in 1929, fortunes were made and lives were broken when the stock market crashed.
The American Clock tells the story of how the Baum family tried to navigate through this unprecedented financial crisis, in a society that was still governed by race and class.
Arthur Miller's ground-breaking play about a nation's unwavering faith in capitalism is set against a soundtrack of 1920s swing and jazz, creating a backdrop that spans a vast horizon from choking high rises to rural heartlands.
