Lakewood Theatre Company continues its 67th season of live theatre with Wait Until Dark an adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher of Frederick Knott’s original play. Murder, secret identities, and a switchblade named Geraldine set the stage for a tale that will have you sleeping with the lights on!
The story: Wait Until Dark by Jeffrey Hatcher, is adapted from the Frederick Knott 1966 original play in a new setting of 1944 Greenwich Village where Susan (Taylor Jean Grady), a blind woman, lives with her husband Sam (Daniel Zubrinsky) in a basement apartment. While away on business, Sam unknowingly smuggles a peculiar doll into his home after a trip to Philadelphia. But when the doll goes missing, a woman is murdered, and a mystery begins to unravel that leaves Susan tangled up with a ruthless con man. A battle of wits ensues, and light becomes dark, as the tables are turned in a deadly game of cat and mouse — all leading to a jump-out-of-your-seat finish.
The Wait Until Dark ensemble cast also includes Paul Angelo, Mario Calcagno, Lana Sage, and Stan Yeend.
