Dial M for Murder

Adapted By Jeffrey Hatcher
From the Original By Frederick Knott

Tucson: Thursday, October 3 – 10 AM
Tempe/Phoenix: Thursday, October 24 – 10 AM
Thursday, October 31 – 10 AM

Passion runs high in this classic revenge thriller, newly adapted for a modern audience by ATC favorite playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (Wait Until Dark, Holmes and Watson, Tuesdays with Morrie, Jekyll and Hyde). Frederick Knott’s nail-biting 1952 play was later adapted by Alfred Hitchcock into the 1954 film. This clever, fast-paced adaptation, which has had box office-busting runs at theatres across the country, adds extra layers of intrigue and emotion to the iconic cat-and-mouse story. Filled with vivid characters, sharp dialogue, and lethal amounts of intrigue, Dial M will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Lightning strikes and sparks fly when Bob and Jean meet in New York City, 1941. But their instant attraction is cut short as World War II drives the pair thousands of miles apart. While Bob is off to the Pacific as a bomb disposal officer, Jean is headed to boost troop morale as a USO actress. Is their connection strong enough to withstand the winds of war? Travel through their passionate, funny, sometimes desperate correspondence as they navigate battle, Broadway, and the complexities of the human heart. A new play written by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated playwright Robert Schenkkan, Bob & Jean: A Love Story is a stirring and romantic world premiere that tells the remarkable story of an exhilarating courtship.
