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

This show ran 700 times to largely sold out shows. I am not the first to recommend it.
Strong show. I prefer to laugh than to learn, but there were laughs. I am glad I didn't have to learn more about prejudice the hard way.

In addition to the Marsh in San Francisco and Berkeley, the show was also a hit with Goldstar members in its run at the American Conservatory Theater.
“Copeland is a winning, magnetic performer who knows how to work an audience … a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Copeland’s ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldberg … Copeland is a genuine discovery.” —Los Angeles Times
“Engaging … Copeland knows how to spin a dramatic yarn.” —The New York Times
