THE STORY: CLARA, is a powerful and moving drama in which an aging father is forced to come to grips with the crushing reality of his daughter's senseless murder. Grilled relentlessly by a dispassionate detective, the father is unable to bring his memory into focus until, in the trenchant monologue recalling a disquieting incident from his wartime experience, the past suddenly clarifies the present and, relieving the father's tortured conscience, unlocks the damning evidence which the detective has been seeking.
"Arthur Miller is the American Ibsen" —Time Magazine. "It is truly an event when a playwright of his stature takes to the public stage after a long absence." —NY Post. "Arthur Miller's admirable voice of conscience remains firm as always." —NY Times
