Theatre in the Country is presenting the thriller Wait Until Dark running now until Oct. 31.
The story is about a recently blinded and recently married woman who is the victim of a home invasion.
Her husband is asked to hold a doll for a woman he doesn’t know as they get off an airplane. The woman disappears. Later, she’s found dead by her former associates, small-time hoods.
The thugs contrive a scheme to recover the doll, which contains a fortune in smuggled heroin. They assume the woman’s blindness will enable them to search her apartment, under her very nose, for the doll.
She catches on to their plan and decides that the only way to overcome the criminals is to wait until dark, when they will be as blind as she…if she can remember to disable every light in her home.
Theatre in the Country has taken over the former Whonnock Elementary School on 272nd Street and 100th Avenue, half way between downtown Mission and downtown Maple Ridge.
