Wait Until Dark

October 24th - October 28th

 

The Original Theatre company in association with Eastbourne Theatres present

WAIT UNTIL DARK

Directed by Alastair Whatley
Designed by David Woodhead

From the hand of Frederick Knott, author of Dial M Murder, and the producers behind Night Must Fall and Birdsong, comes a major revival of the classic, edge of your seat, thriller Wait Until Dark.

Set amidst the social turbulence of 60’s London the play follows the story of Suzy, a blind woman who left alone in her apartment becomes embroiled with a group of conmen hatching an elaborate scam. As the tension notches up, 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 and this exciting new production reclaims it for the stage.

A star cast includes Jack Ellis (Prime Suspect, Bad Girls) as Mike, Karina Jones as Susy and Oliver Mellor (Coronation Street) as Sam Henderson. Graeme Brookes (Invincible) and Tim Treloar (Dark Heart, Father Brown) will play Croker and Roat respectively. Shannon Rewcroft and Thomas McCarron complete the cast as Gloria and Policeman.

Suitable for 12+

Ticket price includes £1 contribution to our heritage fund.

★★★★ “This revival proves, not just how influential the play was in its day, but also how effective it still remains.” Mark Shenton, The Stage on Night Must Fall

“A Killer Thriller to knock ‘em dead…By the end I was jumping out of my skin at every bump and every owl-hoot.” Quentin Letts, The Daily Mail on Night Must Fall
