Charlayne Woodard’s Award-Winning Solo Play The Night Watcher
The James Bridges Theatre (Los Angeles, CA)
In this intimate look at the various definitions of motherhood, Charlayne Woodard returns to Los Angeles with her show that sold out houses New York and Seattle. Winner of the 2011 LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Solo Performance, The Night Watcher beautifully weaves together stories of the ordinary and extraordinary ways Woodard has mentored the children in her life. Although biologically childless, the two-time Obie Award-winner and Tony Award nominee is simultaneously a best friend, advisor, confidant and sage to the many young people who call her “Auntie.” Told with penetrating grace and candor, The Night Watcher is a profound examination of the effect that one woman can have on the lives of others. Woodard’s performances at L.A. Theatre Works will be recorded for future broadcast on satellite and public radio stations worldwide.
