Based largely on Studs Terkel's book, Hard Times, Arthur Miller's play The American Clock tells the story of one family's harrowing struggle through the Great Depression. Miller, also the author of Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, takes the audience into the grim struggle that befell many American families during this time. Directed by Lucas Adams, it follows the Baumler family as the nation’s poor fortune takes them from riches to rags, splitting them apart as they attempt to reconcile themselves with the destitute state of the country.
