  Review of "Wait Until Dark"
I was surprised to read that Frederick Knott (1916-2002), author of Wait Until Dark (1966), Dial "M" for Murder (1952), and not much else, was the most produced playwright of the 20th century after William Shakespeare.

The “moment” to which everyone referred is dependent on Suzy being able to keep her attacker literally in the dark and it is his discovery of a source of light she had not considered that enables him to turn the tables on her.

 Athena Theatre: Wait Until Dark
Wait Until Dark is a worthy production of the Athena Theatre Company; it is gripping and well acted, and highly recommended for a cold, rainy night.
"Frederick Knott's Wait Until Dark was a phenomenon on Broadway in 1966 with Robert Duvall as the psychopath menacing Lee Remick, famously adapted to the screen in 1967 with Alan Arkin and Audrey Hepburn and less successfully revived in 1998 for an aborted run in New York with Quentin Tarantino and Marisa Tomei.
It has to be a tribute to the actors and the director that the most climactic scenes are played in total darkness, as Susy attempts to level the playing field against her captors.

ait Until Dark, Frederick Knott's gimmicky stage play about a blind woman terrorized by crooks, was brought to the screen in 1967 and was accompanied by an even more outlandish gimmick.
Like similar psychological thrillers ruminating on the theme of urban isolation and loneliness (namely The Tenant and The Seventh Victim), Wait Until Dark manages to create a paradoxical environment of civilization devoid of human life.
Once Suzy starts to catch on to the elaborate ruse and is caught calling the police by the con men, she concocts stories about children prank-calling her to say cruel things.

And the bad guys only resort to terror after devoting most of the play to an elaborate con game involving a supposed old army buddy of the husband's, a fake policeman, and the hint of adultery and murder.
A more recent writer might have kept us in the dark longer (so to speak) about just who the good guys and bad guys were, and who was conning who.
But in the 1950s style Knott lays it all out at the start, so the only questions are whether she'll fall for the con and, once she figures it out, how she'll foil the baddies.
