In “Dial ‘M’ for Murder,” written by Frederick Knott, a former tennis pro has married his wife for her
money… and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect crime, blackmailing
an old acquaintance into strangling her and arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. But when things go
drastically wrong, with his wife surviving the attack and her assailant dying instead, the husband sees
another way to guarantee her death and his wealth: making sure she is convicted of his old friend’s
murder. Will he succeed… or will his plot be foiled?

All performances will be held at Stained Glass Playhouse, located at 4401 Indiana Avenue in Winston-
Salem, NC, in the former sanctuary of Marvin United Methodist Church. Tickets are $17 for adults, $14
for seniors (60+) and teachers, and $12 for students. For more information about the show, visit
