OUT AND ABOUTLast Wednesday we went to Schenectady Civic Players, to see WAIT UNTIL DARK.
I love a Wednesday evening 7:30 p.m. show! Especially when it is a mere 5 minute drive from home. And it is especially nice when the weather cooperates (we are having another VERY mild Winter.) And, although I prefer it be in a warmer season, it helps break up the Winter doldrums a bit.
SCP presented the original 1966 version as it was written by Frederick Knott. Set in 1944, Susy is blind, is tormented by 3 con men in her Greenwich apartment, who are in search of a doll and it's stash of heroin. Susy's husband unwittingly brought the doll home.
Here is a link to the Times Union's review of the play.
The stage set was (as always) very professionally crafted and the costumes perfectly in the period. The performances were, for community theater, great as always. Although, I have to admit, Gloria (the brat from upstairs) was my favorite. Gloria was played by a Sophomore from Schenectady High!
