Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees (or believes 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 still another body—this time a woman's—but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas. Her husband, claiming that Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown, calls in a lady psychiatrist, who agrees with his suggestion that Elaine should commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment. From this point on, the plot moves quickly and grippingly as those involved—Elaine's old friend and house guest Blanche; the inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door; and the nosy German maid Helga—all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery of the play as it draws towards its riveting and chilling climax.

To the community:

The Highlands Cashiers Players (HCP) remains completely dedicated to providing excellent theater experiences.   We remain committed to our motto of “Good Plays, Well Done.”   Our Board and members are made up of 100% volunteers, and we strongly believe in an inclusive environment that welcomes ALL.  Whether you have experience or not, we want to be a place where people can learn, have fun, and of course, put on great plays! 

Putting on a show requires many elements to come together.   Of course, actors are vital.   But equally as important is all of the technical elements such as lighting, sound, set design and building, costumes, props, and more.  After diligent and ongoing attempts, The Performing Arts Center and HCP continue working to secure the technical resources needed.   In the meantime, we will be postponing our production of “Night Watch” until a later date. Note that I did say postpone!   We have an amazing group of actors that a raring to go.   It is an amazing show! 

I am sure you may experience feelings of frustration.   Many of you have purchased season tickets,  and tickets for Night Watch.  We promise any Night Watch ticket sales will be refunded.   You may email with any questions.  We ask please for your patience with us.   We have several exciting shows in store for you and will continue to diligently work to get back up to the standard for excellence that you expect.  Please continue to check out the website at: for the latest.

We know the “Show Must Go ON.” We intend for Highlands Cashiers Players to be back very soon!

With Respect and Gratitude,

The Highlands Cashiers Players Board
