The Night Watch Summary

The Night Watch by Hattie Naylor

I thought everything would change, after the war. And now, no one even mentions it. It is as if we all got together in private and said whatever you do don't mention that, like it never happened. It's the late 1940s. Calm has returned to London and five people are recovering from the chaos of war. In scenes set in a quiet dating agency, a bombed-out church and a prison cell, the stories of these five lives begin to intertwine and we uncover the desire and regret that has bound them together. Sarah Waters's story of illicit love and everyday heroism takes us from a dazed and shattered post-war Britain back into the heart of the Blitz, towards the secrets that are hidden there. Olivier-nominated playwright Hattie Naylor has created a thrilling and theatrically inventive adaptation of a great modern novel. The stage adaptation of The Night Watch was premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, on 16 May 2016.

The Night Watch Reviews

In Hattie Naylor's text, the relationship between father and son shines so brightly . . . that it suffuses the whole play with a rich, glowing emotional depth * Scotsman on Going Dark *
Hattie Naylor brings a modern adaptation of the French fable to the stage in order to question our current complicity with the objectification of women . . . poetic in style and well-executed * Whatsonstage on Bluebeard *
Hattie Naylor's writing beautifully conveys the incredible way the boy and dogs connected to each other * Daily Telegraph on Ivan and the Dogs *
