Sky has debuted an exclusive first look image of ‘Bridgerton’ star Phoebe Dynevor as Clarice Cliff in the upcoming Sky Original film, ‘The Colour Room’, in which she stars alongside Matthew Goode.
Dynevor plays the character of Clarice Cliff, a vivacious young factory worker in the industrial British midlands of the 1920s. It follows her journey as a determined, working-class woman as she breaks the glass ceiling and revolutionises the workplace in the 20th century.
Her creativity and ambition drive her to move from factory to factory, despite the financial impact on the household she shares with her widowed mother Ann and youngest sister Dot. Bursting at the seams with ideas for colours and shapes, Clarice takes more and more dangerous risks – but she manages to stay one step ahead of the workhouse and impress the eccentric factory owner Colley Shorter (Goode) on the way with her talent and innovation.
Apprenticed to renowned Art Designer Fred Ridgeway and with support from Colley and other women in the factory, Clarice fights her way through to design the unprecedented Art Deco ‘Bizarre’ range. In the middle of the Great Depression, she ensures the factory’s survival and her future as one of the greatest Art Deco designers and a household name.
Claire McCarthy directs from a screenplay penned by Claire Peate, Kerry Fox, Darci Shaw, David Morrissey also star.
