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.

The Gallery is becoming well known for outstanding theatre productions and this show is yet another. Based on a satire of Sherlock Holmes by Mark Twain this original adaptation is cleverly staged and presented. The audience is treated to two related mysteries. Don't miss this one.
Written by Glenn Kelman
Adapted from the short story by Mark Twain
The great Sherlock Holmes is out maneuvered in the only
detective story ever written by Mark Twain! This tale unfolds with all the mystery and suspense you would expect from a great murder mystery, along with the sense of humor that is the hallmark of a great Twain story.
