The creators of best suspense thrillers and horror stories understand that the way to drive home the feeling of anxiety and fear is to regularly utilize settings without a lot of light, where someone has seemingly forgotten to pay the electric bill. Understanding that being alone in the dark is inherently scary, playwright Frederick Knott developed “Wait Until Dark,” a nail-biting work about a blind Greenwich Village housewife who becomes the target of a home invasion by three con men looking for drugs unwittingly hidden in her apartment. While the 1966 story was eventually made into a film starring Alan Arkin and Audrey Hepburn (the latter was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award), Swift Creek Mill Theatre will be keeping the action to the claustrophobic confines of the stage. “Wait Until Dark” opens June 16 continuing through July 23. 748-5203.
