Circle Players, Inc. is proud to present the next installment of our SPEAK THE SPEECH series of script-in-hand readings of great plays, the classic “Dial M for Murder” by Frederick Knott, directed by Diane Teichman. Come enjoy this beloved mystery written in 1953, the decade in which Circle was founded, as the first staged reading of our 65th anniversary season!

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. But the best laid plans…
