"The Clockmaker's Daughter" US Premiere
Emergent TheatreWorks is excited to announce our first live production - the US premiere of the new musical, "The Clockmaker's Daughter."
Distraught after the untimely death of his daughter, Abraham Reed sets about capturing her image in clockwork, building a young girl so unquestionably real that even he is unable to fathom her making. However, upon winding her, Abraham realizes he has created something more than a machine. Constance, as he names her, can think! Terrified of being discovered, Abraham gives Constance one rule; to remain hidden from the outside world. But the young creation, full of child-like curiosity and frustrated with her limited existence, quickly forms other plans.
The story unfolds as the town, unaware of Constance's secret, accepts her and welcomes her. However, when the truth is discovered, the town has to reckon with whether they can look past Constance's differences and see her for who she really is.

What the Critics Said:
“The intricacy of the breathtaking, magnificent score, married so perfectly with exquisite lyrics and a glorious witty book, has such maturity and assuredness about it.”
- Musical Theatre Review, The Clockmaker’s Daughter, Trinity Laban
“From swooningly romantic ballads to rousing choral numbers, the writing here is wonderfully self-assured, full of bold tunes that worm their way into the ear and a lyrical elegance that traces the tragic beauty of the story arc”
