Night Must Fall By Emlyn Williams

Night Must Fall is a psychological thriller written by Emlyn Williams which was first performed in 1935. This thrilling drama tells the story of Mrs Bramson a bitter, spiteful woman who lives with her niece Olivia and two servants Dora and Mrs Terrance, all of whom despise her.

When Dora the maid reveals she is pregnant Mrs Bramson demands to meet the father Danny, a smooth talking charming Welshman who quickly ingratiates his way into Mrs Bramson’s life. When the blonde bombshell Mrs Chalfont is discovered murdered and headless in the rubbish pit Olivia grows suspicious of Danny and all his charm.

Performed by the London Welsh Centre’s Community Drama group in association with Tigz Theatre this production follow on from last year’s outstanding performance of “Under Milk Wood”. The production will be performed at the London Welsh Centre on Saturday 27th September 2014 at 7.30pm.

  • Next time I want to see the severed head! Well done all!


  • A beautiful cast and obviously a clear creative passion from the director. Would love to see this group develop further work. So glad to see the centre put to such good use!


  • What can I say? You did the Centre extremely proud!!! It was great to see the cast from a different perspective, because now I understand when people said you were all brilliant last year! Every one of you is talented and can really act. I was utterly CREEPED THE HELL OUT and amused throughout. To the directors production re-creating well known plays each year IS A MUST. The familiar draws crowds but it also allows you to be creative with an original piece. Definitely need more of this at the Centre- theatre in every capacity. Love you all – you are ACE
