If you’re a fan of “Only Murders in the Building,” the comedy-mystery series on Hulu, you’ll likely enjoy Lucille Fletcher’s “Night Watch,” a very lively mystery-thriller also set in a posh Manhattan apartment but currently performed at Chicago’s intimate and affordably priced Raven Theatre.
Herein, a New Yorker named Elaine is finding it hard to sleep. And thus she paces around her apartment, heading toward a window, even as her husband tries to calm her down. Suddenly, she screams: the window frames the body of a dead man, sitting in a chair in an apartment across the street. The couple calls the cops but they find no body. And then things intensify from there: One sighted corpse easily leads to another.
