The cast of ‘Dial M for Murder’ Playwright injects some lesbian love into DTC’s Dial M for Murder RICH LOPEZ | Staff writer In Dallas Theater Center’s current production, the company delivers a classic murder-mystery.

Only in this adaptation, while it is set in the past, playwright Jeffrey Hatcher brought some modern love to the tale. But the suspense remains the same.

DTC opened Dial M for Murder on April 10, with previews starting last Friday, April 5. Made popular by the 1954 film by Alfred Hitchcock, the story began as a play by Frederick Knott which premiered in 1952.

In 2022, Hatcher put his own spin on the play. “The play was first commissioned by Barry Edelstein and the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego,” Hatcher said. “He asked me about playing around with the plot in a few ways and said that it would be fun to give the women more to do.” As a big fan of the original play, Hatcher agreed that the character of Margot didn’t have much depth.
