Kentwood Players welcomes the Halloween Season by presenting DIAL M FOR MURDER, a suspenseful thriller by Frederick Knott, opening Friday, September 13 through Saturday, October 19, 2019 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester, CA 90045.

The production is directed by George Kondreck and produced by Kathy Dershimer for Kentwood Players with rights secured from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. Featured in the cast, in alphabetical order, are Philip Bartolf, Ross G, Justin Heller, Jack Maatita, Jeremy Palmer and Courtney Shaffer.

DIAL M FOR MURDER has been remade four different times for television, but is perhaps best known as the classic film directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Ray Milland and Grace Kelly. It remains one of the most suspenseful thrillers ever written, centering on ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice, a gentleman on the surface who plots to murder his wife, Margot, because she had an affair, even though now over, with revenge motivating him to get her money. To accomplish that goal, he blackmails an old school acquaintance to strangle her. When things go drastically wrong, Tony sees another way to guarantee her death and his wealth. Will he succeed or will his plot to murder Margot be foiled?

A suspicious Tony asks his wife, "Who are you talking to, Darling?" (Justin Heller, Courtney Schaffer)
