Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark




An Original Theatre Company production

From the hand of Frederick Knott, author of Dial M Murder, and the producers behind Night Must Fall and Birdsong, comes a major revival of the classic, edge-of-your-seat, thriller Wait Until Dark.

Set amidst the social turbulence of 60s’ London the play follows the story of Suzy, a blind woman, who left alone in her apartment becomes embroiled with a group of conmen 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?
Wait Until Dark, made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967, is often ranked as one of the top 100 scariest films of all time and this exciting new production reclaims it for the stage.
