Osage actress Lulu Goodfox has joined the cast of the upcoming Town and Gown Theatre production of the classic thriller Wait Until Dark, by master playwright Frederick Knott.
Set in the 1960s, Wait Until Dark tells the story of Susy Hendrix, a blind woman, struggling to win a cat and mouse game against three con men searching for a mysterious doll hidden somewhere in Susy’s apartment, according to a theatre release. Aided by her plucky upstairs neighbor, Gloria, Susy sets the scene for a showdown after dark, knowing that the darkness is the only way she can win this game.
Wait Until Dark stars Kim Cox as Susy, Scott Martin as Roat, Timothy Cole as Mike, Russell Hopper as Carlino, Jacob Boyd as Sam, Lulu Goodfox as Gloria, and Klayton Valega and Jenny Martin as Police Officers.
