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.

A funny play that also had its touching and serious moments. It seemed like we were peering into the actual living room for this slice of life. There is quite a bit of comedy and some plot twists to remind you that you were watching something that was written to entertain as well as to provide insight into the challenges of Jewish grandparents on the East Coast trying to adopt their distant grandson from California.
It is suitable for people of all ages, and I'd recommend that families watch it together, as many of the themes are familiar people of all ages.

After losing his parents, Jesús goes to live with his estranged grandparents – the Weismans. Two different cultures - and not just because he’s Hispanic and they’re Jewish!
A hysterical comedy with a great deal of heart, join the Weismans as they begin a new chapter in their life. Along with wacky neighbors, insane social workers and a seemingly impossible situation, Jesús and the Weismans is sure to leave audiences with a smile on their face and a warmth in their heart.
