FAYETTEVILLE — The Frederick Knott thriller that earned a Tony Award nomination for actress Lee Remick in its original Broadway production in 1966 and an Academy Award nod for Audrey Hepburn for the film adaptation a year later will hit the boards at the HIstoric Fayette Theater beginning Friday night.

In the classic play, a blind woman, Susan, is alone in her apartment dealing with a group of conmen that will use any means to get what they want. The thriller moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an exciting finale. Can Susan outwit the murderous visitors?
