In the grey industrial British midlands of the 1920s, creative young factory worker Clarice Cliff (Phoebe Dynevor) makes the bold move to take a lower-paying job at a prestigious pottery owned by Colley Shorter (Matthew Goode).
Driven by imagination and ambition, she fights her way through the deep prejudice of an industry caught in devastating economic hardship as she defies expectation and circumstance to become the designer of her own unprecedented ‘Bizarre’ range, ensuring the factory’s survival and becoming a trailblazer of Art deco.
Followed by Q&A with Claire Peate, a novelist and scriptwriter. Based in Falmouth, her script for The Colour Room won the BAFTA Rocliffe new writers award.
