by BWW News Desk - Oct 7, 2018

Patio Playhouse Community Theater ushers in the season of scares with the suspenseful thriller Wait Until Dark, which opened Friday, October 5. Written by Frederick Knott of Dial M for Murder fame, this version of the 1966 original has been updated by renowned playwright and adaptor Jeffrey Hatcher (Compleat Female Stage Beauty, Tuesdays With Morrie) into a sleek film noir spin for a 21st century audience, even more gripping and fast-paced than before. Set in 1944 Greenwich Village, the plot centers on Susan Hendrix, a recently blind woman who must defend herself from the murderous thieves who have broken into her apartment in search of a doll whose peculiar value will have a surprising reveal. As the gasp-inducing developments advance in a battle of wits between the clever Susan and her ruthless tormentors, she discovers that her blindness might be the unexpected key to her triumph, and ultimately, her survival.

Review: WRITE ME A MURDER Engages Audiences from Start to Finish at Theatre PalisadesReview: WRITE ME A MURDER Engages Audiences from Start to Finish at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Jun 27, 2018

English playwright and screenwriter Frederick Knott, though a reluctant writer, is known for his ingeniously complex, crime-related plots even though he only completed three plays in his career. Two have become classics: the London-based stage thriller Dial M for Murder, which was later filmed in Hollywood by Alfred Hitchcock, and the chilling 1966 play Wait Until Dark, which also became a Hollywood film starring Audrey Hepburn as a blind woman terrorized by thugs in her basement apartment. His third play, WRITE ME A MURDER, has never achieved the same acclaim nor been performed nearly as much as his other two hit plays. See it now at Theatre Palisades, directed with attention-grabbing skill by Michael-Anthony Nozzi. (more...)
