In 2016, the Hawaii State Theatre Council and HittingTheStage.com joined forces to create a source of information about Hawaii's local theatres and the community of playwrights, directors, crewmembers, actors, volunteers, and audience that support it. Welcome to our new website!

     A sinister con man and two ex-convicts who are about to meet their match when they deploy a cleverly constructed deception on a blind woman whom they think unknowingly possesses a doll of particular interest to them. Seemingly disadvantaged, it is only when darkness falls and she turns off all the lights leaving the perpetrators to maneuver in the dark that the real cat-and-mouse game ramps up. You'll be on the edge of your seat as this thriller masterfully moves from one moment of suspense to another and builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene!

Set design is by DeAnne Kennedy.  Sound design is by Chad McComas.  Lighting design is by Janine Myers.  Costume design is by James Correy.  Props design is by Sara Ward.  Hair and make-up design is by Lisa Ponce de Leon.
