When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through April 8 2018
For its next main stage production, the Civic takes a suspenseful turn with the 1952 crime classic Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott. If this title sounds familiar, it’s because visionary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock turned the script into a cinematic version two years later. The plot is twisting and complex with plenty of suspense to keep theatergoers on the edge of their seats, whether they know the story’s finale or not. The spoiler-free gist is this: Tony Wendice finds out that his socialite wife, Margot, has been having an affair. In his resulting rage, he decides to kill her by hiring a hitman, both for revenge and to take control of her fortune. But when things don’t go as planned, and Tony decides to stop at nothing, who will win and who will lose?
