Wait Until Dark
By Frederick Knott
Directed by J.W. Morrissette
Three conmen are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, they're searching for to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across border, not knowing what was sewn inside. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The conmen, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman's murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues and Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules. Just how will this dark game end?
A Broadway hit, this masterfully constructed thriller moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene.
