By Frederick Knott
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
In 1944 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, is imperiled by strange men in her own apartment. As the climax builds, Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller's chilling conclusion.
“A first-rate shocker… the suspense drama we've long awaited eagerly.”
– New York Post
“An edge-of-your-seat thriller.”
– DC Metro Arts
“A classic that still delivers a good scare... delivers a spellbinding final scene that fulfills the promise of the play’s, and the subsequent movie’s, reputation as a classic.”
– The New York Times
