Are you afraid of the dark?  This suspense-thriller will have your heart in your throat.  Susy Hendrix is a blind woman that has been targeted by three con men. They are after a mysterious doll that has accidentally wound up in her apartment, and they won’t leave until they get it.  Featuring innovative staging, you’ll be up close and personal with the action. We promise that you’ve never seen a show like this at The Green Room before.  And when the lights go out… well, you’ll have to come find out for yourself.
