Wait Until Dark is a suspenseful thriller set in 1944 Greenwich Village. Susan Hendrix, a blind, yet capable woman, is imperiled by a team of men in her own apartment. Aided by her difficult young neighbor Gloria, and Mike, her husband’s Marine buddy, Susan must fight for her life against ruthless criminals, led by a sociopath, Roat. The men believe she has a doll hidden somewhere in her apartment that is more than just a toy, and they do not want to play. As the tension builds, Susan discovers her blindness might be the key to her escape, but all must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion. This adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher of Frederick Knott’s 1966 Broadway original, premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in 2013.
