WAIT UNTIL DARK
a psychological thriller
A blind woman, a policeman, a con man, an old friend, a lost doll, and a murder – All of this and more will keep you on the edge of your seat when Island ETC opens WAIT UNTIL DARK on Friday, September 14th.
Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of Frederick Knott’s (Dial M for Murder) classic thriller is a slow burn that builds in menace until the gripping climactic conclusion. WAIT UNTIL DARK is as anxiety inducing as an old film noir, but also has many laugh-out-loud moments that balance the tension. WAIT UNTIL DARK is a wonderful statement about finding your inner strength to overcome insurmountable obstacles, refusing to be a victim, and fighting the true monsters in the world around you.
The talented cast from throughout the Houston/Galveston area includes: Laurel Powell (Susan), Matt Poole (Roat), Riley Harper (Mike), Kyle Wright (Carlino), Kelsey Perkins (Gloria), and Juan Buitrago (Sam). Directed by Kim Mytelka, the production team includes Tom Boone (Scenic Design), Nancy Dougherty (Costume Design), Lisa Miller (Light Design), Jennifer Daugherty (Sound Design) and David Cooley (Stage Manager).
WAIT UNTIL DARK opens on Friday, September 14th and continues through October 6th. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm. There will be one Sunday matinee on September 23rd at 2:30pm. Tickets are $30.00 for adults and $25.00 for students and senior citizens.
