TILLAMOOK — “The Edge of Darkness” sounds like a pretty ominous title for a play, until you find out it’s a psychological thriller written by the talented Brian Clemens.

Directed by Steele Fleisher, this can’t-miss production opens the evening of Friday, Jan. 12, and runs through Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts’ Barn Community Playhouse (1204 Ivy St.).

This dark, sinister thriller is set in the early days of the 1900s with a daughter who has amnesia and a fear of knives and silver bells … but why? Who is the mysterious handyman? What secrets are the parents hiding? And why does the young woman sleepwalk … while speaking fluent Russian?

From an expert in the art of thriller writing with more than 50 years of screenwriting experience, the show is excellent entertainment for January’s dark winter nights.

“The Edge of Darkness” opens with a Gala Celebration.

Friday and Saturday shows start at 7 p.m., Sunday shows at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person and available at Diamond Art Jewelers (503-842-7940).

Celebrating more than 35 years in Tillamook, TAPA is a nonprofit community theater dedicated to providing high-quality performing arts experiences through entertainment, education and community participation.
