WAIT UNTIL DARK Opens at Four County Players

As part of their 50TH Anniversary Season in Barboursville, Four County Players is proud to present the classic thriller WAIT UNTIL DARK by Frederick Knott, opening February 24 on the Mainstage.

New York City, 1967. A sinister gang of con men are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. The con men, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in a woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. With only the help of a young neighbor, Susy must unravel the dangerous charade, leading to a deadly game of cat and mouse where her only chance at survival is to bring the con men into her world of darkness.
