Ennis – The next installment of the Ennis Public Theatre’s 2017 Season opening Friday, May 19, is the stage version of the Audrey Hepburn classic, “Wait Until Dark.”
This masterfully constructed thriller, by Frederick Knott and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds towards an electrifying breath-stopping final scene.
In 1944 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix (Brianna Roberts) a blind yet capable woman is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment.
The three men Roat (Monty Montkress), Carlino (Walter Smith) and Mike (Clark Hackney) weave a tale of deceit undermining Susan’s faith in her new husband Sam (Tim Roberts).
As the climax builds, together with her young neighbor Gloria (Mary Lofreddo/Kelly Strickland), Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape. But she and her tormenters must Wait Until Dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion.
