Wait Until Dark, a chilling creation by Frederick Knott, who penned the classic Dial M For Murder, is on at the Pomegranate Theatre until Saturday, January 25.

This thriller, presented by Tabs Productions, features a sinister conman hunting for a mysterious doll who calls at the home of a husband and his blind wife. With the husband’s potential implication in a murder, the wife suspects that the doll could be key to proving that he’s innocent or guilty.

The mood lightens next week with a production of Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Time and Time Again about a know-it-all boss, a straying fiancee and a garden gnome. Catch Rumpus Theatre Company’s show from January 28 to February 3.
