Murder-mystery/crime thriller devotees got lucky this year, as several of our region’s community theaters chose to include shows of the genre in their lineups. Next up is Interplayers’ rendition of the 1966 Broadway thriller Wait Until Dark, about a blind New York City housewife who’s targeted by a trio of criminals. The bad guys are looking for a doll in the woman’s home that contains more than just bits of stuffing, and they’re willing to off anyone who gets in the way. This play was also adapted as a 1967 film starring Audrey Hepburn, earning her an Academy Award nomination. At Interplayers, the chilling tale with a satisfying and “dark” ending is directed by Jack Phillips.
