Apprenticed to renowned Art Designer Fred Ridgeway (David Morrissey) and with the support of Colley and other women at the factory, Clarice fights her way to design the unprecedented Art Deco ‘Bizarre’ range.

Phoebe hobbled over the production earlier this month, saying, ‘I’m so excited to be part of the cast of The Color Room, especially playing the role of one of the country’s most celebrated performers, Clarice Cliff. It is truly an honor to hire such a remarkable character.
‘The script is a beautifully written contemporary take on the 20th century, and I am proud to work with such a strong female team, both in front of and behind the camera.
“I look forward to telling Clarice’s story and, of course, working with Matthew.”
