Kicking off the season is a brand new adaptation of a classic thriller – Wait Until Dark. Written by Frederick Knott and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, Wait Until Dark is the story of Susan Hendrix, a recently-blind housewife who has unwittingly come into possession of a doll filled with stolen diamonds. While her husband is away, she is descended upon by a pair of dangerous con men who are determined to retrieve the stolen goods. A tense cat-and-mouse game of wits ensues as the criminals weave an elaborate con to coerce Susan into giving them the doll. Tensions rise as night falls and the criminals grow desperate. Susan knows that if she can wait until dark, she may be able to turn the tables on her attackers…and save her life.
