Wait Until Dark Graphic.jpeg

By Frederick Knott

Directed by Barbie Nettles


In 1971 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment. As the climax builds, Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion.

This masterfully constructed cliffhanger moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene.

“…a vulnerable woman discovering unexpected resources that allow her to turn the tables on her assailants is still the main draw…goosepimply climax…a gripping finish.” —The Los Angeles Times.

“…reminds CGI-infected audiences that a few shadows, a shiny knife, and compelling characters can still go a long way to create suspense…WAIT UNTIL DARK earns its climax through enthralling, layered characters.” —Entertainment Weekly.

“…a first rate shocker…the suspense drama we’ve long awaited eagerly.” —NY Post.
