About the Show
Variations Theatre Group presents a newly adapted version of a classic thriller, following a blind woman and her struggle against assailants who try to get the best of her.
In 1944 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment, tormentors who will stop at nothing to get what they want. As the climax builds, Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s shattering conclusion.
"The play takes time to develop, building to a truly terrifying climax, with much of the action in complete darkness. The final moments will have you holding your breath and holding on for dear life. Christina Elise Perry as Susan will have you convinced she is blind and you will feel her terror."
"As blind Susan Hendrix, played by a radiant Christina Elise Perry, and the villainous Roat, Kirk Gostkowski in yet another astonishing performance, struggle around the darkened set, the only sounds heard are of raspy breath and kitchen chairs hitting the floor…It is during those final scenes where Roat is in full psycho mode that Gostkowski dazzles with his abilities. He is scary, funny, disturbing and disgusting all at once."
