“The clock runs the East End… n’ I run the clock.”

A brilliant young migrant girl is single-handedly running the towering clock that is the beating heart of the East End. When she is discovered by a gentleman explorer they are forced to choose between the worlds they know or each other. Brolly’s epic new opera tells a powerful story of love and survival that takes the audience on an extraordinary journey into the visually stunning animated world of the clock.

The director is Dominic Hingorani and designer is Rachana Jadhav. Keisha Atwell plays the Greener and the cast includes Patricia Rozario. Keisha Atwell has been in many West End musicals including ‘Memphis’, ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Guys and Dolls’, directed by Michael Grandage.

The composer is Martin Ward. His dance-theatre shows, in collaboration with choreographer/director Will Tuckett; include The Wind in the Willows (2002); Pinocchio (2005) and Faeries (2008) for the Royal Opera House; Timecode (2005) and Stargazer (with Morgann Runacre-Temple, 2012) for the Royal Ballet; and The Canterville Ghost (2006) for the English National Ballet. ‘Wind In The Willows’ at the Duchess Theatre won an Olivier Award in 2014.
