Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark


September 1 - 29, 2013

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.

"It is a testament of the brilliance of theatre when the spectators can be overcome with adrenaline and anticipation as it is with Triad Stage’s Wait Until Dark. If you are ready for a gripping rollercoaster of classic suspense, contrary to the name, you are urged not to wait!"


Theatre Review | "Wait Until Dark" @ Triad Stage

From the Front RowSeptember 6, 2013

 Whereas most theatrical productions emphasize what you see, Wait Until Dark often deprives us of that which we often take for granted, giving the audience a wholly unique and terrifying experience...it makes for some truly thrilling theatre.

 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.
