Co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre, Quay Arts Centre, Isle of Wight, and BAC.
From award-winning writer and director Mark Murphy, this unflinching, discomforting and ultimately consoling story was a slick and sinister thriller from the darkest recesses of Luna’s past. A history of traumatic dreams, broken hearts, and long-buried but if uncovered, will change her life forever.

Catherine Dyson : Stage Award Best Actress Nominee 2005
""A haunting and beautiful performance""
""The Night Shift made you want to run out of the theatre, grab a group of friends and go back and see it all over again. It was intense. Brilliantly performed. Spine tingling. The Night Shift blasted a breath of fresh air through Studio 2.""
David Jubb, Artistic Director at BAC
""This must rate as one of the best plays I have ever seen - shocking, scary, totally absorbing - with brilliant performances from Catherine Dyson and Craig Conway. A masterpiece.""
Audience member, Salisbury Playhouse, November 2006
