Before it was a classic Alfred Hitchcock film, Dial M for Murder began its life on the stages of London’s West End in 1952. Over 60 years later, playwright Frederick Knott’s seminal work is still as thrilling as ever and is set to be brought back to life again next month by New Farm’s Nash Theatre.
Ex-tennis professional Tony Wendice married his wife Margot for her money. Now he plans to kill her for the same reason, convinced that she is having an affair. When his precise murder plot goes awry, can he improvise an equally deadly plan B? The exciting ending of this erotic and psychologically suspenseful story, which has thrilled audiences for decades, will leave you breathless at the edge of your seat.
Directed by Brenda White and featuring Raphael Jadin, Renaud Jadin Charles, Langford, Steve Pearton and Bianca Reynolds, Dial M for Murder is a thriller in the classic tradition with enough twists and turns to keep you wondering how the innocent can be saved and the guilty brought to justice.
Dial M for Murder will be staged 12 September – 3 October at Merthyr Road Uniting Church, 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm. Tickets are available now via www.trybooking.com/144213 or call 33794775.
