Attempts on her Life
10.05.2014 - 25.05.2014

The lines between deception and reality blur amidst the dark entrapment
Every step could led to danger, her sense of touch is her only defence
A thriller film classic adapted for the live stage

Susy, a blind woman, is alone in her apartment. Gangsters have broken into the apartment to look for their stolen goods and set up a series of schemes that take advantage of her disability. Vulnerable and unaccompanied, Susy relies on her sense of touch to deal with the malicious strangers. In the darkness, every step could draw her closer to danger.

A 1967 film adaptation starring Audrey Hepburn was nominated for several awards including the Oscar and Golden Globe. Its outstanding plot, ingenious set design and blood-chilling suspense make it a true classic of its genre. An original stage version translated and directed by Artistic Director Anthony Chan depicts the dark side of human via a contemporary approach, taking the audience on a thrilling theatrical journey in this season opening production.
