"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."
In the late 1940s, calm has returned to London and people are recovering from the chaos of war. In a quiet dating agency, a bombed-out church and a prison cell, the stories of three women and a young man unfold backward to the heart of the Blitz, revealing the secret desires and regrets that bind them together. Olivier-nominated playwright Hattie Naylor has created a thrilling, inventive adaptation of the best-selling novel by Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, Fingersmith).
"The Night Watch burns with a slow but scorching intensity, like the blasts that constantly put its circle of four Londoners at risk. It's Sarah Waters' triumph." The Independent (UK) book review
