Inspired partly by Studs Terkel's oral history Hard Times, and partly by Arthur Miller's own recollections, The American Clock is a panoramic 'dramatic vaudeville' about the Great Depression of the 1930s. When the stock market crashes, a well-to-do family loses everything and is forced to move from their plush penthouse apartment to the modest home of a relative in Brooklyn...

More relevant than ever, The American Clock is a deeply affecting evocation both of a tortured time in American history and of the indomitable spirit of the people who survived in the face of unaccustomed adversity.
