A night of live suspense.
When murder calls… hang up. Frederick Knott’s intense and darkly gripping thriller, Dial M for Murder, famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock, and now brought to you by Giving Tree Theater. Tony is convinced his wife is having an affair. We watch mesmerized at Tony’s precision in planning what must surely be the perfect murder… until it falters in the most unexpected way. Claustrophobic and frightening, a brilliant and erotic tale of betrayal, passion and ultimately, murder. (PG, Stylish Thriller)

Director & Cast
Directed by David Morton. David has been a kind and stoic member of the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City theatrical scene for years. His work on stage in some of the most commanding (and dialogue-heavy) roles, his wealth of experience Stage Managing and Assistant Directing in the community, and his overwhelmingly calm and gentle spirit will surely open new doors to this Hitchcock-infused production. If anyone can unearth the heart in a show about murder and deception, it is David Morton.
Assistant Directed by the lovely Traci Rezabek.
Margo: Jessica Link
Tony: Matthew James
Max: Kyle Shedeck
Inspector Hubbard: Scott Humeston
Captain Lesgate: Logan Adam Schultz
Officer Thompson: david e. hein
