CARY ARTS CENTER—It's just eight minutes in a pitch-black room, occasionally punctuated by light. But the final scene of Frederick Knott's ruthlessly effective thriller has been terrifying audiences since its 1966 Broadway debut. Susy, a blind woman living in a basement apartment in Greenwich Village, has something three very bad men want after an international drug smuggling deal goes wrong. She's easy pickings, right? Not quite: The smart, resourceful Susy manages to turn the tables on her stalkers. But has she thought of everything? Kirsten Ehlert and Larry Evans star in this cat-and-mouse classic from Cary Players. 7:30 p.m. Fri.–Sat.; 3 p.m. Sun., $18–$20, 101 Dry Ave., 919-469-4069, www.caryplayers.org. —Byron Woods
