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.
Hattie Naylor has won several national and international awards for her plays and has had a number of her stories broadcast on Radio 4, including Mathilde, Solaris, J'Accuse and The Making of Ivan the Terrible. Theatre and opera work include Mother Savage for Travelling Light, the opera Odysseus Unwound for T¿te ¿ T¿te, The Nutcracke...
