The Night Watch


  • King's Theatre 2 Leven Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 United Kingdom (map)

The Night Watch is the thrilling and beautiful story from the award-winning, number one best-selling author, Sarah Waters (Tipping the VelvetThe 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 BirdsongThe 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.

Starring Mara Allen, Louise Coulthard, Malcom James, Lewis Mackinnon, Phoebe Pryce, Florence Roberts, Sam Jenkins-Shaw and Izabella Urbanowicz.

You can enjoy pre-theatre meals at Henrick’s before the show or indulge in after show cocktails in the relaxing and comfortable setting of our little bar.

Enjoy a Scotch Old-fashioned, perfectly dry Martini, or sip away at chilled Marlborough Sauvignon. Crab cakes will go nicely with the New Zealand tipple.

While situated a two minute walk from the theatre you can be assured of making curtain call.

Pre-theatre meals of two or three courses available for £12.50 and £16 respectively.
