New musical In Clay is to run in London in 2024 at Upstairs At The Gatehouse.
The piece, which ran at VAULT Festival 2023, has a book & lyrics by Rebecca Simmonds and music & lyrics by Jack Miles.
Based on a true story, In Clay is told from a quaint Parisian kitchen in the late 1930s.
Marie-Berthe Cazin, a ceramist in her early 40s, eagerly awaits the arrival of her closest childhood friend and now celebrated artist, Henrietta Tirman. As Marie prepares for the evening ahead, she reflects on the great joys and sorrows of a life devoted to making art.
Book tickets from £16
At the Upstairs At The Gatehouse from 13 March 2024 to 7 April 2024
The cast will feature Rosalind Ford and Eleanor Walsh.
Writer and Lyricist Rebecca Simmonds said: “In Clay is a story about finding joy in the creative process and what a source of joy the show’s journey has been so far.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the team at Upstairs at the Gatehouse on its next stage of development and look forward to celebrating all things contemporary female and non-binary pottery with the accompanying exhibition. Expect pots to fly, friendships to fray and a night full to the brim with gypsy jazz!”
