Keeping Watch

Staff Pick

In a year blessed with numerous world-premiere productions, none proved more heartfelt, insightful or quintessentially “Atlantan” than Theatrical Outfit’s debut of Thomas Ward’s KEEPING WATCH, a comedy-drama about fate and faith in a small Alabama town. Ward’s two-track plot follows a preacher courting a free spirit in a cemetery while a group of former high school friends has an increasingly fraught reunion at its old hangout. With a terrific cast of local actors, Keeping Watch captured a little of the soul of the South without resorting to stereotypes of Dixie-based theater.
