Kentwood Players Presents Noir Thriller NIGHT WATCH

Kentwood Players presents NIGHT WATCH, a noir thriller by Lucille Fletcher, opening Friday, September 23 through Saturday, October 8, 2022 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 PM at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90045. Directed by Brandon Ferruccio, and co-produced for Kentwood Players by Kim Peterson and Catherine Rahm with rights secured from Dramatists Play Service, Inc., the cast features (in alphabetical order) Jack Bernaz, Benjamin Billand, Nina Rose Carlin, Jennifer Lee Moody, Lisa J. Salas, Michele Selin, Courtney Shaffer, and Sean Spencer.

NIGHT WATCH, perhaps best known as the 1973 feature film starring Elizabeth Taylor, is an ingeniously devised "Hitchcock type" noir thriller which builds steadily in menace and suspense until the final, breath-stopping moment. Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. The mystery begins when Elaine observes one corpse, and then another in the abandoned building opposite her home. Although her friends, family and authorities may not believe her, Elaine insists that she saw what she saw, and continuous suspicions arise as she begins to drive herself and everyone around her to their emotional limits. But with only limited evidence on hand, will plans be made for Elaine to be sent to a sanitarium or will a supposed killer make themselves known?
