Wait Until Dark
Written by Frederick Knott
 
Directed by Faye Harrington
Produced by Faye Harrington
 

Only one thing stands between three dangerous con men and a fortune hidden inside a child's doll: a blind woman named Susy Hendrix. What seems like an easy day's work quickly turns into a gripping game of cat and mouse as the trio leads her on a dangerous path of deceit and murder. What they didn't count on is that Susy has a game of her own as she turns her disability into her greatest weapon. From the author of Dial "M" for Murder comes one of the most famous thrillers of our time.

Arsenic and Old Lace
by Joseph Kesselring
 
Directed by Jack Wickwire
Produced by Kellianne Erath

 
This madcap dark comedy is as funny as it is famous! The elderly Brewster sisters are the town darlings, but they have a little secret. Their nephew Mortimer discovers they are 'helping' lonely gentlemen boarders to early graves in the cellar by way of homemade, arsenic-laced wine! Add a brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, a criminal on the run, and the girl Mortimer wants to marry, and you have a recipe for hilarity.

The Unexpected Guest
by Agatha Christie
 
Directed by Matt Cederholm
Produced by Faye Harrington

On a foggy night in Wales, a stranger walks into a house to find a man murdered and his wife standing over him with a gun. The woman is dazed and her confession unconvincing so the unexpected guest decides to help her blame the murder on an intruder. As the murder is investigated, a Pandora's box of love and hate, suspicion and intrigue is opened in this lesser known Christie jewel.

Directed by Matt Cederholm, and presented by TCAN Players, the Metrowest region's award-winning community theatre troupe.

The story starts when a man breaks down near an isolated house and enters, finding the body of a dead man slumped in a chair. A woman stands over the corpse, gun in hand, and confesses to the murder.

A straightforward case of murder? Maybe. But then again, maybe not.
