Clare Burt, Golda Rosheuvel and Josie Walker have been cast in The American Clock at the Old Vic in London.

The Arthur Miller play, which is directed by Rachel Chavkin, runs from February 4 to March 30, 2019, with press night on February 13.

Other casting includes Amber Aga, Paul Bentall, Abhin Galeya, John Marquez, Christian Patterson and Abdul Salis.

They are joined by Greg Bernstein, Flora Dawson, Fred Haig, Jyuddah Jaymes, Francesca Mills, Taheen Modak and Ewan Wardrop.

Further casting is to be announced.

Chavkin said: “We’re excited to be bringing together a range of wholly unique artists for The American Clock.

“It’s essential that this production capture the epic scope of Arthur’s play, which includes many races and cultures and classes, not to mention different corners of the American geography.”

She added: “All the characters in the play are struggling with the shared experience of the Great Depression and I hope that by embracing the cultural specificity of each performer we will further deepen and expand the themes of the show.”

The American Clock has set design by Chloe Lamford, costume by The Stage Debut award-winner Rosie Elnile, lighting by Natasha Chivers and sound by Darron L West.

Choreography is by Ann Yee and compositions are by Justin Ellington.
