Simultaneously a best friend, advisor, confidant and sage to the many young people who call her “Auntie,” Charlayne Woodard is childless only by biological standards. Told with penetrating grace and candor, Woodard beautifully weaves together stories of the ordinary and extraordinary ways she has mentored the children in her life. Declared “thoughtful, vivid, entertaining and poignant” in its Seattle Repertory run last October, The Night Watcher is an intimate look at the various definitions of parenthood.
