From the international number one best-selling author, Sarah Waters


Adapted by Hattie Naylor

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.

“Captures the heart of Sarah Waters’ love story”
The Guardian

“One of the best storytellers alive today.”
Independent on Sunday
