dial m for murder

See the Dial M for Murder play at Playhouse and the Park from August 17 to September 15.

Murder and malice take center stage in a fresh adaptation of an iconic thriller! The setting is midcentury London. It’s been a year since Margot ended her affair with her lover, Maxine, and returned to life as usual with her husband, Tony — or so she thinks.

Tony knows about the affair and spins an intricate web of suspicion and deception. When his plan goes awry, it sets in motion a series of deadly, unexpected twists threatening everyone involved. Best known for the 1954 film by Alfred Hitchcock, this masterful murder mystery receives a clever and fast-paced new treatment for the stage.
