English playwright Frederick Knott has received a special award from us: Guy Who Wrote the Most Familiar-Sounding Plays We’ve Never Actually Seen. One of them, Dial M for Murder, became a Hitchcock film and, based on Wikipedia’s plot description, is hella complicated -- if anyone really did dial M, it would be the most straightforward activity of the entire evening.
 Wait Until Dark, Knott’s other super-well-known title, is a well-crafted story that can be described succinctly: Blind lady turns the tables on bad guys by leaving them in the dark. That’s not a spoiler; the audience’s journey from here to there crackles with suspense and peril. Arizona Theatre Company’s production continues through Sunday, November 30, with shows at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 20, at Herberger Theater Center, 222 East Monroe Street. For tickets, $36 to $60, visit www.arizonatheatre.org or call 602-256-6995.


Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 16, 7 p.m.; Sundays, 1 p.m.; Wed., Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m.; Thu., Nov. 20, 2 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 22, 2 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 23, 1:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 29, 4 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 30, 7 p.m. Starts: Nov. 13. Continues through Nov. 30, 2014
