According to the Sutter Street Theatre playbill, the local production of Dial M for Murder is a new version of the celebrated murder mystery that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 masterpiece for the screen and the original book by Fredrick Knott. 

Much like the  Hitchock classic, the  story surrounds its main character, Tony Wendice who is convinced that his wife Margot has been cheating on him. Although it seems that the affair is over, the story doesn’t end there. Tony, in his jealousy, spins a web of suspicion and deception that will tighten around them and ensnare them both in danger, recrimination and murder.
