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.
