Dial M for Murder
by Navasota Theatre Alliance
Apr. 28 - May. 14, 2017
Tony Wendice married Margot for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect crime. Tony blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into doing the deed for a fee, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. But, the murder doesn’t go as planned and the victim survives. This doesn’t baffle the husband for he sees his hireling’s death as an opportunity. What is Tony’s next move? Will his plot to frame his wife be discovered before it’s too late? The play unfolds in a scene of almost unbearable suspense. Earlene Rainey directs.
