Directed by Grace Taylor (Six associate director, Stay Awake Jake) and starring Rosalind Ford (David Copperfield, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) In Clay is a new one-woman musical told from a small kitchen in the suburbs of Paris in the late 1930s.

Production shot

Coloured canvases and vases litter the space. A well-used foot-pedalled turntable is visible to one side. Marie-Berthe Cazin, a ceramist in her late 40s, eagerly awaits the arrival of her closes friend, Henrietta Tirman, a celebrated artist.

As Marie prepares for the joyous evening ahead of them, she is transported back to their first meeting as students. The chasm between who she was and who she is now prompts Marie to reminisce, and dream about what could have been.

Combining jazz manouche with contemporary musical theatre, In Clay is a story about near misses, unfulfilled potential, and the joy of creating art.
