Fiery Angel presents Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott. Directed by Lucy Bailey.

★★★★ 'Dial M for Marvellous' – Daily Telegraph

'Icily elegant – as stylish as it is unsettling' – The Times

★★★★ 'Lucy Bailey has triumphed, turning this murder mystery into a gripping, thrilling production. This is a classic thriller that will literally have you on the edge of your seats.' – Yorkshire Post

When murder calls … hang up.

Frederick Knott’s intense and darkly gripping thriller, Dial M for Murder, famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock, is now on a UK tour.

Tony is convinced his wife is having an affair. We watch mesmerised at Tony’s precision in planning what must surely be the perfect murder … until it falters in the most unexpected way. Claustrophobic and frightening, Lucy Bailey’s exciting new production reclaims this brilliant and erotic tale of betrayal, passion and ultimately, murder.

Lucy Bailey’s directing credits include the Royal Shakespeare Company’s brilliantly reimagined production of The Winter’s Tale which played at the Festival Theatre in April 2013.

'Chilling and entertaining in equal measure' – Whatsonstage.com
