News: Wait Until Dark to tour UK

Graeme Brookes and Tim Treloar will play Croker and Roat respectively in Frederick Knott’s thriller, Wait Until Dark.

Set amidst the social turbulence of 1960s London, the play follows the story of Susy, a blind woman who, left alone in her apartment, becomes the victim of an elaborate scam hatched by a group of conmen. Susy is left to fend for herself, and eventually finds a way to turn the tables on the conmen and give them a taste of life in the dark.

Brookes and Treloar join the previously announced Jack Ellis as Mike, Karina Jones as Susy and Oliver Mellor as Sam Henderson. Shannon Rewcroft and Thomas McCarron complete the cast as Gloria and Policeman.

Frederick Knott, best known for writing Dial M For Murder, wrote Wait Until Dark in 1966. Audrey Hepburn starred as Susy in the 1967 film adaptation, for which she was nominated for both the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Actress. The film is often ranked as one of the top 100 scariest films of all time.

Wait Until Dark will be directed by Alastair Whatley, with designs by David Woodhead, lighting by Chris Withers and sound and music by Giles Thomas.

 

Wait Until Dark plays a UK tour from 24 August – 2 December 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
