“…original and remarkably good theatre—quiet in style but tingling
with excitement underneath.” —NY Times.

Curtain Call Playhouse, South Florida’s most active touring company, will present Dial M for Murder at various venues throughout the region through May and June.
Now in their 18th year, Curtain Call Playhouse’ unique touring situation has allowed them to reach a much wider and more diverse audience than a traditional ‘one space’ theatrical company. They currently partner with the City of Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Miramar, Sunrise, and The Township Center for the Performing Arts in Coconut Creek.
Best known as a classic Alfred Hitchcock film, Frederick Knott’s psychological thriller, Dial M for Murder premiered on BBC television in 1952, and was performed in London’s West End and on Broadway several years before Hitchcock adapted it for the screen. The play centers around former tennis star Tony Wendice and his scheme to have his wealthy wife murdered now that she has designated him her heir. Although Wendice’s plans are evident almost from the outset, Knott’s clever plotting and characterizations will keep audiences on the edge of their seats throughout the play.
“I am so pleased to be directing this outstanding timeless thriller,” says director Charlie Redler. “It’s a story with twists, turns, and surprises. There is a love affair, bribery, and back stabbing…This play and its conclusion will not be new to many in the audience, especially Hitchcock lovers, but working with these excellent actors to create a fresh new look at peeling away the layers of this thriller is an exciting and interesting challenge.
The cast of Dial M for Murder consists of Bill Battaglia as Tony Wendice, Kris Coffelt as Margot Wendice, Peter Hawkins as Inspector Hubbard, John Hernandez as Captain Lesgate, and Anton Simon as Max Halliday.
Dial M for Murder will run at various venues throughout South Florida from May 8th through June 27th. Ticket prices and performance times vary at each venue. See below for details.
