Blind housewife Susy Hendrix is being terrorized in her apartment by a band of criminals who believe she has the heroin-stuffed doll they smuggled into the country. But Susy's no helpless victim. Utilizing her unique abilities, she's able to level the playing field with the help of a young neighbor, devising a pulse-pounding game of cat-and-mouse that unfolds in the dark of night and has been thrilling audiences for decades. Originally produced on Broadway in 1966 and made into the classic Audrey Hepburn film a year later, Wait Until Dark is an electrifying thriller by Frederick Knott, the playwright behind Dial M for Murder. Prepare to spend the last 20 minutes propped precariously on the edge of your seat at this Spreckels Performing Arts Center production of Wait Until Dark.
