About the show:

Wait Until Dark
by Frederick Knott, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Ben Layne
December 2 - 18, 2016

Is there anyone Susan can trust? Navigating life as a blind woman in 1944 in New York City is hard enough; getting innocently caught up in the competing schemes of con men and murderers is not a complication she needs! Tension mounts as Susan becomes increasingly aware of the danger she’s in – but those who would manipulate her underestimate her at their own peril. Join us for an updated version of this suspenseful classic!

Roles:

Susan - 30's, Female, blind. She might seem harmless, but she's a survivor.

Carlino - 30's - 40's, Male. An imposing figure, maybe a little sloppy, and more than a little careless.

Harry Roat - 30's - 40's, Male. A man who can seem perfectly harmless, but something about him is unsettling. Wheels always spinning, making it up a little as he goes along. Always puts himself first.

Mike - 30's, Male. Charming. The handsome boy next door, grown into a man.

Sam - 30's, Male. Susan's photographer husband. A good man at his core, but whose PTSD brings an edge to him.

Gloria - teen, Female (could be played by an older actor who reads younger). A kid on her own with a rough home situation.

Rehearsal Schedule: Up to five nights per week starting in early October.

Performances: December 2-18, 2016 (Fri-Mon, Fri-Sun, Thu-Sun; 11 total)
