1988 December Wait Until Dark

By Fredrick Knott
28th September – 4th October 1988
Directed by Ann Dickens

  A Workington Playgoers Club Production

Notting Hill Gate, London. 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 home of Sam Henderson and his blind wife, Susy and set about trying to retrieve it. They start an elaborate scam to persuade Susy to hand it over, but Susy, it seems, is no easy target. As the tension mounts, Suzy is left to fend for herself but with the phone line cut dead and the house plunged into darkness, can Suzy outwit the murderous visitors?

Wait Until Dark, made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967, is often ranked as one of the top 100 scariest films of all time.
