Dial M for Murder

Summary

July 21 – August 28, 2022

Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

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 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 them and ensnare them both in danger, recrimination, and murder. 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.

Content warning: This production contains moments of violence, electronic and herbal cigarette smoke, strobe lighting, and haze.

Dial M for Murder is supported by production sponsors Karen and Donald Cohn, Peter Cooper and Erik Matwijkow, Silvija and Brian Devine, Pamela Farr and Buford Alexander, Hal and Pam Fuson, Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Lolly & Duck, Evelyn Mack Truitt, Debra Turner, and Anonymous.
