By Frederick Knott
Directed by Steve Tague
Thompson Theatre, Roselle Center for the Arts



Inspiring Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film of the same name, Knott’s spine-tingling tale follows former tennis star, Tony Wendice, as he plots the perfect crime. Tony married Margot for her money and now it’s his motive for having her murdered. He blackmails an old acquaintance, arranges an ironclad alibi, and awaits the deadly finale, until his plot goes chillingly awry. With tables turned, Tony will now stop at nothing to ensure that his devious plan succeeds in this nail-biting drama.


Dial "M" for Murder runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 15 minute intermission.
