“This play is a beautiful and timely examination of how, in so many ways, very little has changed for ambitious, driven and talented women who marry and have children..” - NOHO Arts
The music might be classical, but the play tackles very contemporary issues. This one-woman show tells the story of a fascinating and complex artist. Fusing words, music, irony and poignant encounters, Clara explores the story of a fascinating and controversial woman, delving into her life and relationships as she gets ready for a date with none other than the famous Johannes Brahms.

‘‘Woodruff’s thoughtful script attended by her tremendously dextrous performance will remind you why you fell in love with bare-knuckle back room theatre in the first place.’’ -Everything Theatre ★★★★
‘‘This is a superb hour of three distinct stories, bringing to mind Cloud Atlas, with its contrasting stories taking on past, present and future, bound together by thoughts of oppression and control; the real question, though, is whether the characters we actually see are the oppressed or the controllers.’’ - The Spy in the Stalls ★★★★
“the sheer absurdity of the premise gives it a sharp comic edge, yet what is even sharper are the performances. The virtuosity with which James Dart and Joy Bowers deliver the quick-witted dialogue is what makes this piece thrillingly entertaining.”
this is a compelling production in a little gem of a venue which, although slightly off the beaten track, is well worth covering that extra ground to get to.’’
The Spy in the Stalls ★★★★
‘‘two exceptionally gifted and versatile young actors, well drilled by director Erica Miller’’
London Theatre1 ★★★★
