'Dial M for Murder’ and mystery at Hill Country Community Theatre
COTTONWOOD SHORES — Ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice has a plan. He’s going to kill his adulterous wife, Margot, and get her money by blackmailing some scoundrel to commit the murderous act for him.
But the plan takes an unforeseen turn when the man he gets to kill his wife, Legate, ends up getting killed in the process, while his wife lives. A normal person would have seen this as a major stumbling block, but Wendice recovers and rolls along with it.
Things become more complicated when his wife’s old boyfriend enters the fray.
