In “Dial M for Murder,” Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately for Tony, the murderer gets killed and the victim survives.

Theatergoers will have to come to the performance to find out what happens next.

The Knott play premiered in 1952 on BBC Television, before being performed on stage in the same year in London’s West End in June, and then New York’s Broadway in October. In 1954, it was made into a movie with director Alfred Hitchcock. The movie starred Ray Milland and Grace Kelly.
