I'LL BE BACK BEFORE MIDNIGHT is a thriller in the Alfred Hitchcock mode, with nods to GASLIGHT, Agatha Christie, and WAIT UNTIL DARK. Since its premiere in 1979 it has received nearly 1,000 productions worldwide and been translated into a dozen languages, yet, amazingly, has never been produced in Los Angeles. Until now.
Sweet, vulnerable Jan has had a nervous breakdown. To help her recover, her husband Greg rents a remote cabin in the country. Their neighbor is a strange farmer who delights in telling gruesome ghost stories. Then Greg's beautiful, sophisticated sister arrives, and frightening events begin to occur. Is Jan still ill and imagining things? Is Greg trying to help her - or drive her crazy? Is the farmer an ally or an enemy? And what's really going on with the sister? Mounting suspense and surprising twists turn a familiar country scene into a world of sudden terror.
