Wait Until Dark
An edge-of-your-seat thriller, set amidst the social turbulence of 1960’s London. The play follows the story of Suzy, a blind woman, who, left alone in her apartment, becomes embroiled with a group of con-men hatching an elaborate scam. As the tension mounts, Suzy is left to fend for herself. But with the phone line cut dead and the house plunged into darkness, can Suzy outwit the murderous visitors? From the author of Dial M for Murder. Read casting information here.
