The Wayne Theatre Presents a Limited Run In-House Production of the Thriller "Dial M For Murder" for the Halloween Season



Beginning October 20, the Wayne Theatre in Downtown Waynesboro, Virginia will present an on-stage, live adaptation of the suspense-filled thriller, Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott. This limited-run production comes just in time for the spooky season.  Dial M for Murder was first staged on Broadway in 1952 and was later adapted into the script that became the well-known Alfred Hitchcock classic film from 1954.  

Directed by Robb Zahm at the Wayne Theatre, Dial M For Murder will run October 20, 2022 through October 29, 2022 at the Wayne Theatre, presented in the Custin Cabaret, which is located on the second floor of the Wayne Theatre. Limited seating is available; and seating is general admission for this production.

Dial M for Murder is a familiar story for many who are acquainted with the hit film or other works that present this suspenseful tale of  Tony, a former professional tennis player, who has grown accustomed to the lavish lifestyle that had made possible by his heiress wife, Margot.  Convinced that Margot is having an affair, Tony, rather than play victim to her waning affections, begins to plot her demise. Between cocktails, a game of cat and mouse laced with blackmail and intrigue, begins.  When Tony’s precise plans go awry, he must improvise an equally deadly plan and stay one step ahead of the police. As tension vigorously mounts (alongside Tony’s tenacity to get away with murder—all while exuding charm and charisma), the sinister game that's being played through the telephone keeps audiences spellbound.

Dial M for Murder has been translated into 24 languages and the play has been produced in more than 30 countries and local audiences will have opportunities to see the story come to life at the Wayne Theatre October 20, 2022 through October 29, 2022. Tickets are on sale now at waynetheatre.org or may be purchased at the Wayne Theatre Box Office located at 521 W. Main Street, Waynesboro, Virginia.
