Gilles has lived a life amongst the rambling beauty of the old family home. Now he's gone blind, and his children Helene and Michel have returned for a few days to move him to a secure apartment. On the outside Gilles is stoic, resigned to his fate but inside he silently rages against the darkness. Drawn together in a gardern full of echoes, the three discover tender memories of a shared past unwilling to release them. The Nightwatchman is a moving, poetic and ultimately life-affirming ode to the human spirit and the memories that define us.

Daniel Keene's plays have been performed widely throughout Australia and overseas, especially in France. His plays, which include All Souls, Cho Cho San, Silent Partner, Low, Terminus, The Architect's Walk and The Ninth Moon, have received numerous literary awards. His collaboration with director Ariette Taylor, the Keene/Taylor Theatre Project, was critically acclaimed both locally and overseas.Review:
'The world of this deceptively simple play is rich with memory, pervaded by loss and informed by a deep feeling for the ways in which individuals endure in the world: alone even when they are together, loving even as they turn away from each other. It's like Samuel Beckett at his best. The writing is so achingly beautiful.' --John McCallum, Australian
