Wait Until Dark
A new adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher, based on the play by Frederick Knott
Don’t let Susan Hendrix’s quaint apartment fool you; hidden within is a score for which thieves and con men would kill. Employing disguise and deception, two newly acquainted crooks become all the more desperate and depraved, but must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion. Frederick Knott’s play inspired a film of the same name and multiple Broadway productions, earning Tony and Academy Award nominations for many of the actors involved – including the film’s star, Audrey Hepburn. This adaptation, a Colorado premiere, captures the suspense of the original work in a new time and setting.
“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…a tense thriller” – NY World Telegram
