Greenwich artist Susy finds herself harassed by a band of criminals who believe she has their drugs in this modern adaptation of Frederick Knott's '60s thriller. But although the young newlywed has recently lost her vision, she's no helpless victim. Utilizing her ingenuity and remaining senses, she's able to level the playing field, devising a pulse-pounding game of cat-and-mouse that unfolds in the dark of night. Originally produced on Broadway in 1966 and made into the classic Audrey Hepburn film a year later, Wait Until Dark is an electrifying story by the playwright behind Dial M for Murder. Learn More

“Luminous…Wilson is at the top of his form. There are few playwrights who can touch him.” —New York Times
What does freedom feel like? A Tony Award nominee for best play in 2005, August Wilson’s _Gem of the Ocean _delves into the magical awakening of Citizen, a man seeking a new life at the bustling home of 287-year-old Aunt Ester. Ester, the fiery and spiritual matriarch of a tight-knit group of local characters, sets Citizen off on a journey that gives testament to the incredible complexity of what it really means to be free.
Ruben Santiago-Hudson, whose 2002 hit _Lackawanna Blues _was recently adapted by HBO Films, directs this new A.C.T. production. No stranger to Wilson’s oeuvre, Santiago-Hudson originated the role of Caesar in Broadway’s _Gem of the Ocean _and received the 1996 Tony Award for his performance in Wilson’s Seven Guitars.
