Clarke Peters and Sule Rimi are to step in to cover the roles of Robertson, Moe 3 and Taylor in Arthur Miller’s The American Clock at the Old Vic, directed by Rachel Chavkin, following news that Giles Terera has had to withdraw from the production for personal reasons.

Peters will open in the production on 4 February 2019 (press night is 13 February), performing the roles until 2 March. Rimi, currently appearing in Sweat at Donmar Warehouse, will then step in from 4 March until the end of the run on 30 March.

The actors join the previously announced cast: Amber AgaPaul BentallGreg BernsteinClare BurtFlora DawsonAbhin GaleyaFred HaigJyuddah JaymesJohn MarquezFrancesca MillsTaheen ModakChristian PattersonGolda RosheuvelAbdul SalisJosie Walker and Ewan Wardrop.

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

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.

The production will celebrate the changing face and evolution of the American family by having three sets of actors in the roles of Moe, Rose and Lee Baum for each performance.
