About Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark was a huge success when it premiered on Broadway in 1966. And now Jeffrey Hatcher has adapted Frederick Knott’s 1966 original giving it a new setting … Greenwich Village, New York.

Susan Hendrix, a woman who has recently lost her vision, is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment. The three crooks are desperate to find a treasure-filled doll and plot to compel the owner to give away its whereabouts. They tell Susan a frightening story about her husband’s supposed infidelity. But she becomes suspicious.

And in a terrifying climax she makes use of the advantage that the blind have over the sighted. But first, she and her tormentors must Wait Until Dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion.
