Bill has lived a life amongst the rambling beauty of the old family home. Now he's gone blind, and children Helen and Michael have returned for a few days to move him to a secure apartment. On the outside Bill is stoic, resigned to his fate, but inside he silently rages against the darkness. Helen feels the weight of responsibility -- for both her father and her own family. The fragility of her marriage has her longing for the untroubled days of childhood. Photographer Michael is on the verge of a quiet breakdown, having for years avoided meaningful connection with any human being. Drawn together in a garden full of echoes, the three discover tender memories of the shared past unwilling to release them... The Nightwatchman is an incredibly moving, poetic and ultimately life-affirming ode to the human spirit and the memories that define us. 3 acts, 2 male, 1 female.
