Thespian Thoughts – Night Watch – Theatre Review by Sandro Monetti


NIGHT WATCH: A good suspense play where excited audience members share theories at intermission.
Theatre Review by SANDRO MONETTI

One sign of a good suspense play is when excited audience members are sharing theories at intermission of what might happen in the second half.

That’s the situation at Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills thanks to this gripping thriller about a stressed out wife who may or may not have seen a couple of murders while looking out of her living room window.

Is she losing her mind? Being manipulated by her husband? Or is there something else going on here?

All these questions will be answered in a fast moving play that will keep you guessing right up until the end.

Director Bruce Gray keeps building the mystery helped by a terrific cast and a brilliant behind the scenes team.

The play bring back memories of Gaslight and Rear Window but belongs in such special company. If you’re in the mood for a good mystery, Night Watch is the one to watch.
