Dial M for Murder


March 8-10, 15-17 and 22-24, 2013


by Frederick Knott
Director: Catherine Burkhart


At first glance, Tony and Margot Wendice appear to be the perfect British couple: young, wealthy, and sophisticated. We soon realize that Tony married Margot for her money, and is not at all the loving husband he appears to be – nor is their marriage ideal. Tony discovers Margot is having an affair with an American writer and decides to have her killed. Tony arranges the “perfect murder,” blackmailing an old college associate to “do the deed,” arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. Things don’t go according to plan, however. What follows are some of the most suspenseful moments ever on stage. Dial M for Murder is filled with anticipation and emotion, a classic dramatic thriller that will have you glued to your seat!
