Blind housewife Susy Hendrix is terrorized in her apartment by a band of criminals who believe she has the heroin-stuffed doll they smuggled into the country. But Susy's no helpless victim. She manages to kill the lights, leveling the playing field and creating a truly terrifying game of cat-and-mouse. Originally produced on Broadway in 1966 and made into an Audrey Hepburn film a year later, Wait Until Dark is an electrifying thriller by Frederick Knott, the playwright behind Dial M for Murder.

This is a tale of how an elderly woman in rural Georgia deals with changes in her family relationships and the family's collective relationship to the land on which they all grew up. That might make you think this has the potential to be a real yawner, but this show is anything but that. It's a powerful and poignant story, brought to life by some truly wonderful performances and the creative use of an incredible set. Like the rich and deep lives of its main characters, Foxfire is full of emotion, delivered with a surprising abundance of humor with the overall result an immensely entertaining work.
Cronyn and Cooper, both extremely successful artists in their own right, came together in 1980 to create Foxfire. Their first collaboration was intended to create a vehicle for Cronyn and then-wife Jessica Tandy to act together. The main source for this play came from The Foxfire Books, a compilation of magazine articles written by Georgian high school students in the 1960s about their grandparents’ homesteading generation in the Appalachian Mountains.
Foxfire was the starting point of a long friendship and playwrighting partnership for Cronyn and Cooper that, after Tandy died, eventually resulted in marriage for the pair.
