Playwright and performer Charlayne Woodard is a force of nature, and in The Night Watcher she finds a new way to explore her “mother” nature. Woodard describes her life as half of a childless couple, finding herself mysteriously drawn to second-hand parenting. With wisdom and wit, Woodard’s acclaimed one-woman show strikes a chord for the longing of motherhood. The Night Watcher is the fourth of four one-woman shows by Woodard—including Pretty Fire, In Real Life, and Neat.
Original music by Obadiah Eaves.
Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in October of 2012.
