Stop Clock

A 90-minute musical. 

Book and Lyrics: Brooke Magalis
Book and Music: Clayton Daniel Briggs

Stop Clock takes place in 17th century Bohemia and is loosely based on the legends surrounding the Prague Astronomical Clock. In a town recently ravaged by the plane a young woman tries repairing the clock in town square. The community collectively worries it will driver her mad just as it did her father. When the clock begins predicting deaths, the town realizes they must stop the clock before their fates are sealed.

Stop Clock explores themes of death, fate, and time. The timeless score is written in a contemporary musical theater style with the intention of being orchestrated for piano and strings.
