Some choices last more than a lifetime.


Up in cosmic heaven, Herr Mann, the clockmaker, and his friend Frieda, are interrogated by a skeptical, mysterious Monsieur Pierre. Meanwhile, back on earth, we catch up on the events that have brought them together. Time stands still in this gentle, surprising tale of love, heroism and eternity.




"...Brhel conveys the bashful joy of a man thawing out after a long winter."


"THE CLOCKMAKER, true to the quality of the offerings Next Act Theatre provides, is a grabber. It holds you for 100 minutes and does not let you go."


"Next Act finds the heart of human connection."


"The extremely sparse set allows the imagination to take over... you can assume that everyone in the audience is seeing a slightly different play."
