Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder


Globe-Commissioned World-Premiere Adaptation
By Frederick Knott
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Stafford Arima

A new version of the celebrated murder mystery that inspired Hitchcock’s masterpiece! Tony Wendice is convinced that his wife Margot has been cheating on him. Now it seems that the affair is over, but in his jealousy Tony spins a web of suspicion and deception that will tighten around himself and Margot and ensnare them both in danger, recrimination, and even violence. The New York Times calls Dial M for Murder “a cat-and-mouse waiting game, with enough twists and sudden hitches to keep the chills and thrills running.” Acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (Scotland Road, Wait Until Dark) brings us an edge-of-your-seat, world-premiere adaptation of this modern classic, directed in high style by Globe veteran Stafford Arima (Allegiance, Red Velvet) in our most intimate performance space.
