IPAL's "Wait until Dark" play 
opens May 29
NEW IBERIA, La.--- The Iberia Performing Arts League will present its final show of the season, "Wait Until Dark" by Fredrick Knott May 29 - June 8, 2014, at the Essanee Theater (126 Iberia St., New Iberia). 
This psychological thriller revolves around a blind housewife trapped inside her apartment as she is terrorized by murderous con-men looking for a heroin stuffed doll they believe is in her apartment. When she realizes that she is the victim of a bizarre charade, she decides to play their game and gets rid of all of the lights in the apartment, leaving herself and the con-men to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.

Directed by Travis Guillory, the show stars Anna Edwards (Susy Hendrix), David Arceneaux (Harry Roat), Perry Ledet (Mike Talman), Steven "Smitty" Smith (Sergeant Carlino), Carlin Sekhani and Kelbi LaShare (Gloria), Phanat Xanamane (Sam Hendrix) and Bob Sidman (Policeman).

IPAL is supported in part by a Grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
