First produced in its final form at the Mark Taper Forum in 1984, The American Clock captures a family plummeting into the depths of the Great Depression. Through the family’s struggles, myriad perspectives are explored, as Arthur Miller bears witness to the rise and fall of Americana.

This kaleidoscopic study of America during the early years of the Great Depression exposes Miller’s writing at its most personal and intimate. Born on 112th Street in Manhattan on October 17, 1915, Miller won the Pulitzer Prize for Death of a Salesman in 1949 and All My Sons, View from the Bridge, and The Crucible are staples of the American Theatre. His second marriage in 1956 to Marilyn Monroe ended in 1960. Harold Clurman notes that when Miller was asked in what way his plays were related to the events of his life, he responded, “In a sense all my plays are autobiographical.”

Ann Sheffield is the scenic designer, Sara Lamb is the costume designer, Devon Johnson is the lighting designer, Leilani DiCato is the make-up designer, and the sound designer is Sarah Scheie.
