About the Play
Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately, the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn't baffle the husband: He sees his hireling's death as an opportunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her.
This British murder-mystery was written by Frederick Knott and enjoyed a successful run on Broadway before being staged in countless regional and community theatres across the country. It was released on film, directed by Alfred Hitchcock with leading lady Grace Kelley, in 1954 and is considered to be one of the best early 3D films.
"…original and remarkably good theatre—quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath." —NY Times.
"It's a holiday for the whodunit fans, and, as such, it couldn't be more welcome." —NY Herald-Tribune.
