The classic stage thriller “Wait Until Dark” will be at Playhouse Merced for three weeks starting on June 2nd. It is the story of a blind woman named Susy who is targeted by a group of con artists after her husband unknowingly transports heroin into the country. Posing as police, the criminals convince Susy that her husband is a murder suspect, but she becomes suspicious and attempts to outwit them with the help of the little girl next door. As evening arrives, it becomes a deadly game of cat-and-mouse as Susy and her assailants both attempt to get the upper hand.
Widely considered one of the best thrillers ever written for the stage, “Wait Until Dark” is an entertaining and gripping play that will keep you on the edge of your seat during the climactic final scenes. Written by Frederick Knott in 1966, it has been revived and produced throughout the world ever since, and was adapted into a film starring Audrey Hepburn. It is now considered a classic work of modern theatre that has maintained its edge throughout the decades.
“Wait Until Dark” opens on June 2 and runs through June 18, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:00. Tickets are currently on sale at the Playhouse Merced Box Office, online at www.playhousemerced.com, or by calling (209) 725-8587. “Wait Until Dark” is recommended for teens and adults.
