Already feeling cooped up at home? Want to get out of the house for a few? Now is the perfect chance, tonight marks the first performance of “Wait Until Dark” by the Flint Community Players. The show begins at 7:30pm and is sponsored by Greater Flint Arts Council Share Art Genesee Grants Program.
“Wait Until Dark” is a thrilling caper written by Frederick Knott. Susy Hendrix, a recently blinded housewife, unwittingly owns a doll filled with illicit drugs. Harry Roat, a maniacal yet sophisticated criminal, attempts to con Susy into giving up the doll with the help of his two small-time accomplices. A battle of wits ensues when Susy becomes wise to Roat’s antics and begins to launch a counterplot against the thieves. The drama is unique and plays on the theme of darkness and light as Susy navigates through her sightless world, and the crooks signal each other with light.
The Flint Community Players have been delighting city audiences since 1928 with their first performance at Central High School entitled “Meet the Wife.” They typically perform five works per season at their current location, the Tom and Bea Nobles Performance Hall on Ballenger Hwy.
“Wait Until Dark” will run at Nobles Performance Hall through November 17.
Shows will take place Nov. 7, 8, 9, 15, & 16 at 7:30pm and Nov. 10 & 17 at 2:30pm.
Tickets are available at the box office or at http://www.flintcommunityplayers.com/index.html
