Why Watch The American Clock

New York in 1929 witnessed a maelstrom of total choas as a consequence of the Great Depression. This play, written by Arthur Miller is a tale of hope, reinvention, and idealism during this difficult time, through the eyes of the Baum family.

The Story

This seasoned play highlights the distress of the Baum family during the great depression. Their lives take a dramatic turn when they are forced to move from their home in Manhattan to live with relatives in Brooklyn. They try to navigate through this event’s consequent struggles while barely staying financially afloat.
