Abstract: Wait Until Dark was a Summer Repertory Theatre Production performed seven times, beginning 5 June 19 77. This thesis is an analysis of that production. The first chapter includes biographical information concerning the author and a summary of the social background of the setting in New York City. Parallels are drawn between the violation of the privacy of an individual whether that individual resides in a large, metropolitan area or a smaller city. Also included in the first chapter is a plot synopsis and character description and analysis; setting description, and justification for having chosen the script. The second chapter is the prompt book with all character blockings. The third chapter is a further analysis of the production and includes the author's opinion of his interpretation of the script and the various characters success in portraying their role. The audiences' reactions are also discussed in this chapter.
