From the international number one best-selling author Sarah Waters.
Adapted by Hattie Naylor. 
The Night Watch is the thrilling and beautiful story from the award-winning, number one best-selling author, Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, The Paying Guest and The Little Stranger).
London in the 1940s. A time when hearts beat faster and life burned more brightly. The Night Watch is a tender, tragic and beautifully poignant portrait of four ordinary people caught up in the aftermath of an extraordinary time. 
Olivier-nominated playwright Hattie Naylor creates a gripping and theatrically inventive adaptation of this great modern novel. From the team that brought you Birdsong, The Habit of Art and The Importance of Being Earnest this eagerly anticipated brand new production is set to shine on tour for the first time.
"Hattie Naylor’s exceptional adaptation of the best-selling novel.”
