Queensbury Theatre presents Wait Until Dark
Frederick Knott’s classic play Wait Until Dark (1966) has been retrofitted with a new timeframe by playwright Jeffrey Hatcher. The action of the play has been moved back 20 years to mid-World War II, replete with styles and values of the era. The play resonates strongly as a period piece, with an as-yet-unpublished script that offers Houston audiences a new vision of an oft-performed community theatre war horse.
Directed by Rich Mills, the production casts a film noir spell over the familiar thriller about a blind woman unwittingly drawn into a smuggling plot with a psychopathic killer lurking in the shadows.
