Wait Until Dark

At The Pyrle Theater - Greensboro


Wait Until Dark

by Frederick Knott

Don’t turn off the lights.

An apartment in 1960’s Greenwich Village becomes the site of theater’s most terrifying game of cat and mouse. Desperate to reclaim a mysterious doll stuffed with illegal drugs, a con man lays a trap to ensnare a blind woman.  With the help of his criminal sidekicks and a few clever disguises, he spins a tale to fool the innocent and unsuspecting woman.  But when the doll can’t be found, the situation spirals out of control.   From the author of the Triad Stage favorite DIAL “M” FOR MURDER, WAIT UNTIL DARK proves that what you can’t see can most definitely hurt you.

 Laurence Lau waits in the green room at Triad Stage. He sits in a comfortable chair. He’s relaxed. In 30 minutes, Lau will step on stage at The Pyrle Theater for his first technical rehearsal. He’ll leave his laid-back, down-to-earth demeanor backstage and take on the persona of detail-oriented, scheming sociopath Harry Roat Jr.
