The Group Rep presents Frederick Knott’s “Dial “M” for Murder” directed by Bruce Kimmel, produced by Mannette Antill.
In this mystery thriller play that inspired Hitchcock’s suspense classic, a cunning man marries a wealthy woman for her money and plans to murder her to get her fortune.
The man devises a perfect murder, blackmails a criminal and arranges a brilliant alibi. To say more about a twisty and surprising thriller simply wouldn't be sporting, would it?
This exciting mystery thriller had a highly successful run on Broadway.
