A classic thriller is given fresh life ...

Wait Until Dark was a huge success when it premiered on Broadway in 1966

And now Jeffrey Hatcher has adapted Frederick Knott's 1966 original giving it a new setting ...

Greenwich Village, New York

Susan Hendrix - a blind yet capable woman - is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment

The three crooks are desperate to find a drug-filled doll and plot to compel the owner to give away its whereabouts

They tell Susan a frightening story about her husband's supposed infidelity

But she becomes suspicious

And in a terrifying climax she makes use of the advantage that the blind have over the sighted

But first, she and her tormentors must Wait Until Dark to play out this classic thriller's chilling conclusion


"a vulnerable woman discovering unexpected resources that allow her to turn the tables on her assailants is still the main draw goose-pimply climax gripping finish" ~ The Los Angeles Times

" satisfyingly tense, evergreen clever, with gratifying thematic undercurrents" ~ The Hollywood Reporter

" reminds CGI-infected audiences that a few shadows, a shiny knife, and compelling characters can still go a long way to create suspense" ~ Entertainment Weekly
