Night Watch

by Lucille Fletcher

First produced by The Village Playhouse in March 1979, this thriller is full of suspenseful twists and turns, leaving you guessing until the final, breath-stopping reveal.

Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler is pacing her living room, when she sees the body of a dead man in the window across the way.  The police are called, but find nothing except an empty chair. Elaine’s terror grows as shortly thereafter she sees the body of a woman in the same window. Thinking Elaine may be having a nervous breakdown, her husband convinces her to commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment.  But is she actually crazy, or does someone want her out of the way for their own sinister reasons?
