Set your watches – The Clockmaker’s Daughter is coming back to the London stage for one night only.
Following an acclaimed world premiere season at the Landor Theatre, the original cast and creative team of The Clockmaker’s Daughter, a stunning new British musical by Michael Webbon and Daniel Finn, are to reunite for a special one-off concert version in St. James Studio on Monday 2nd November 2015.
The Clockmaker’s Daughter was showered with praise by the critics and the production was nominated for 10 awards. It sold out the majority of its run and received rave reviews.
Plot: Spindlewood, like most towns of age, has its traditions. But no practice, custom or old wives warning is so firmly adhered to as ‘The Turning of the Key’. Every year, on the last night of winter, as the first day of spring unfolds, the townsfolk gather to take part in a strange ritual. They meet in the centre of the town square, where a statue bearing the likeness of a young girl stands, poised and still, one hand raised as if to toast the sky. Constance has stood in the square for as long as anyone can remember. But she is never more lifelike than tonight. Spindlewood is also home to a clockmaker with a secret – something the simple folk of the town must never discover. Through methods hidden even to himself, the Clockmaker has created something much, much more than a machine…
