This classic murder mystery that inspired Hitchcock’s iconic film follows Tony Wendice, a former writer who concocts a plan to murder his wealthy wife, Margot. With the help of a sharp-witted detective, Margot fights to clear her name and reveal the truth about her husband’s deadly scheme gone awry. In this new adaptation, Jeffrey Hatcher layers clever dialogue, intense suspense, and unexpected plot twists with a modern exploration of greed, power, and manipulation. Dial M for Murder is a thrilling and suspenseful play that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats until the very end!
