Giles Terera has pulled out of the Old Vic’s forthcoming production of The American Clock citing personal reasons, with Clarke Peters replacing him.

The production of Arthur Miller’s play, directed by Rachel Chavkin, will run from February 4 at the south London venue, with press night on February 13.

Peters will stay with the show until March 2, with Sule Rimi joining the show from March 4.

Peters and Chavkin previously worked together in 2016 at Lincoln Center on the play The Royale.
