Forty-seven years after Wait Until Dark premiered on Broadway, Jeffrey Hatcher has adapted Frederick Knott's 1966 original, giving it a new setting. In 1944 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment. As the climax builds, Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller's chilling conclusion.

*This production is offered in loving memory of Lisa Opheim, who passed away October 1, 2014.  Lisa, who was serving on our board of directors at the time of her passing, chose to direct this play for our 2015 season.  Lisa had already begun the work of directing, and it is through her notes and conversations with us that we collaborate to present Wait Until Dark, doing our best to honor her inspired vision.
