The Original Theatre Company and York Theatre Royal present, from the international number one best-selling author Sarah Waters,The Night Watch, adapted by Hattie Naylor (Ivan And The Dogs, Going Dark, As the Crow Flies and Bluebeard). First performed in 2016 at Manchester’s Royal Exchange, the first revival of The Night Watch opens at Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne on 22 August, touring the UK until 23 November 2019.

Set in London in the 1940s, we follow the lives and loves of people recovering from the chaos of war. The Night Watch is a tender, tragic and beautifully poignant portrait of four ordinary people caught up in the aftermath of an extraordinary time.

Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, The Paying Guest and The Little Stranger) has sold over 2 million novels in England and 4 million worldwide, of which half a million were The Night Watch.

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 will tour for the first time.

The tour will star Mara Allen, Louise Coulthard, Malcolm James, Lewis Mackinnon, Phoebe Pryce, Florence Roberts, Sam Jenkins-Shaw and Izabella Urbanowicz.

The tour is produced by The Original Theatre Company and York Theatre Royal. More details can be found here.
