Dial “M” For Murder and A Moon For The Misbegotten

Watermark Theatre’s Artistic Director Robert Tsonos, and General Manager Andrea Surich have announced the 2018 Summer Season. The season will include the classic thriller Dial “M” For Murder by Frederick Knott and the powerful A Moon For The Misbegotten by Eugene O’Neill. The popular music series Classic Music Reignited returns once again, celebrating its 5th year, and the Watermark Play Reading Series will focus on new plays in development by Atlantic Canadian Playwrights.

Dial “M” For Murder by Frederick Knott, written in 1952, tells the frightening story of a husband planning the murder of his adulterous wife. He arranges the perfect crime by blackmailing a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her at a time when he has the perfect alibi. Of course, things do not turn out as planned. The play that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s film classic weaves an ever-tightening web of danger and deception. Full of twists, turns, and suspense, this gripping thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Written in 1943 by four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Eugene O’Neill, A Moon for the Misbegotten is set on a Connecticut tenant farm where two lost souls find hope and redemption under a lover’s moon. Josie Hogan is a boisterous woman with a quick tongue and a tarnished reputation. It’s been a hard and lonely life, working the Tyrone farm with her bullying father. One night, with the man she is in love with, James Tyrone, sparks fly and hope burns anew as two “misbegotten” souls come together.

“O’Neill at the height of his powers…hauntingly poetic truths about love and self-delusion.”—The Los Angeles Times

In a shift in programming to the Play Reading Series, this year’s plays will showcase new work in development by Atlantic Canadian playwrights. A selection process will begin immediately to choose three new, unpublished, and unproduced plays, to be read by Watermark’s company of actors during the month of August. A list of plays and playwrights will be released in the spring of 2018.

Yes, it’s been 5 years since the Classic Music Reignited series, curated by Rob Oakie, began. As always, Island musical artists interpret classic composers in a way that you have never heard before. Stay tuned for the list of composers and Island musicians soon.

Watermark Theatre strives to produce the finest professional theatre on the Island, says the Artistic Director.

Watermark is a member of the PTN (Professional Theatre Network of PEI). The Theatre is located at 57 Church Hill Avenue, North Rustico.
