Watermark Theatre has announced that Artistic Director Robert Tsonos will play the lead part of Tony Wendice in Dial “M” For Murder by Frederick Knott in the company’s 2018 summer season.

Originally hired as an actor by Watermark in 2014, Robert has not appeared on stage with the company since taking over the role as Artistic Director almost three years ago. Audiences will remember him as Lord Goring in An Ideal Husband, Bill Starbuck in The Rainmaker, and Richard The Lionheart in The Lion In Winter.

Robert’s other acting credits include theatres across the country and internationally. He played the lead role of Macbeth at the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hamlet with the Tokyo International Players as well as appearing in Problem Child, The Domino Heart, and For The Pleasure of Seeing Her Again at the Canadian Embassy Theatre in Tokyo. Canadian credits include Three Days of Rain at Sudbury Theatre Centre and Othello at Persephone Theatre. Film and television credits include Reign, Packed to the Rafters, Rake, Push, and Warehouse 13.

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.

“The role of Tony Wendice is a challenging one”, says Tsonos, “he’s a sly, conniving scoundrel, but is extremely smart and charming at the same time. I can’t wait to start rehearsals.”

Watermark’s 2018 summer season runs from June 26 to September 1, 2018.
