Director's Statement

How to get away with the perfect crime? In keeping with all the Netflix detective shows you’ve been streaming of late, check out our winter selection, “Dial M for Murder” by Frederick Knott, best known for the film version that was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Grace Kelly. The play takes place in the early 1950s and is a perfect suspense thriller with entertaining characters as a charming cad, a trusting wife with a love interest, and a Clouseau-type sleuth.
