Professional Theatre For Maine

Wait Until Dark

Oct 16 - 25, 2015

by by Frederick Knott, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher

A heart-pounding new adaptation of this suspense-filled classic.

A blind, yet capable, woman finds herself unknowingly in danger when a group of con-men enter her apartment. As the climax builds, she must outmaneuver her tormentors by turning her disability to her advantage and “wait until dark” to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion. This breathtaking new adaptation combines the suspense of Hitchcock and the fun of an amusement park ride to create an experience that will leave you clutching your armrest with fright! Public Theatre policy requires you to pay for your entire seat, even though you’ll only be using the edge. The thrills begin when the lights go out.

Bringing your kids? Recommended for Grades 7 and up.
