13 5 STAR REVIEWS
6 OFF WEST END AWARD NOMINATIONS

Nominated for 6 Off West End Awards including Best Musical Production, Best Lead Performance in a Musical, and Best Director, IN CLAY runs for a strictly limited season at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, where it has earned 13 5 star reviews.


Based on a true story, IN CLAY is a new one-woman musical told from a quaint Parisian apartment in the late 1930s. Marie-Berthe Cazin, a ceramist in her early 40s, eagerly awaits her estranged childhood friend, and now celebrated artist, Henrietta Tirman. Her imminent arrival pushes Marie to reflect on the great joys and sorrows of a life devoted to making art.


This critically-acclaimed production must end 7 April 2024.


IN CLAY is also accompanied by an exhibition celebrating contemporary women ceramicists, curated by Rose Gleadell. International in scope, In Clay: The Exhibition will shine a light on the ways in which women artists are making their mark on the medium. Amongst the twenty artists include Emily Myers, Ngozi Omeje, Ying Zheng, Venetia Berry, Maja Quille, Tessa Eastman, Iku Nishikawa and Rose Schmits.
