Wait Until Dark

From the hand of Frederick Knott, author of Dial M for 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 notches up, 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.

A star cast includes Jack Ellis (Prime Suspect and Bad Girls) and Oliver Mellor (Coronation Street).
