Written by Frederick Knott

Just in time for Halloween, a masterfully constructed thriller will take Rep audiences from one moment of suspense to another toward an electrifying, breath-stopping finale in Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott.

Knott’s play inspired the 1967 Hollywood film of the same name, with both the play and film garnering multiple Tony, Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for many of the actors involved – including the film’s star, Audrey Hepburn. The film also ranked tenth on Bravo’s “100 Scariest Movie Moments.” 

A sinister con man and two ex-convicts are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his wife, Susy. With murder afoot, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, as Susy discovers the only way to play fair is to play by her rules.
