“WAIT UNTIL DARK is a tense thriller”, “Frederick Knott is a master craftsman,” “a first rate shocker…the suspense drama we’ve long awaited eagerly”.-New York Post
A Broadway hit, this masterfully constructed classic thriller, will be presented on the Dawson Community College Auditorium stage Friday, November 12th & Saturday 13th at 7:00pm both nights. The auditorium is located in Toepke Center on the DCC campus.
THE STORY: A sinister con man, Mr. Roat, played by Jeff Whaley and two ex-convicts, Mike played by Daniel Curtis and Carlino played by Emily Erhart are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the apartment of Sam Hendrix played by Anthony Lopez and his blind wife Susy played by Jeannette Oliphant. The con men and the two ex convicts construct a clever deception to obtain the doll which contains several grams of pure heroin. Susy refuses to reveal the location of the doll and with the help of her 9 year old neighbor Gloria played by Caroline Kunst they attempt to win in this deadly cat and mouse game. It is a ‘thriller’ until the very last seconds of the show. Policemen are played by Suela Cela and Alissa O’Dea. Directed by Ron Conrad, the play artfully moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene.
Students working on set construction and the lighting crew include Kylee O’Dea, Louis Herman, and Jonathan Chamberlain.
