Auditions for...

Wait Until Dark

by Frederick Knott


Directed by Patrick Downey

In this tense thriller, a sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, have traced the location of a heroin-laced doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam and his blind wife, Susy. When Sam is implicated in another woman's murder, Susy decides that her husband's innocence can be found inside the doll, and a deadly game of cat and mouse begins.
