Dial M for Murder


TV and stage favourite, Tom Chambers, (Top Hat, Strictly Come Dancing) stars in this brand-new production as the charismatic and manipulative Tony Wendice, a jaded ex-tennis pro who has given it all up for his wife Margot, performed by Sally Bretton (Not Going Out, The Office, Death in Paradise). When he discovers she has been unfaithful his mind turns to revenge and the pursuit of the ‘perfect crime’.

Also featuring Christopher Harper (Coronation Street) and Michael Salami (Hollyoaks), the iconic Dial M for Murder, made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s world-renowned film, is the definitive seat-gripping drama that is not to be missed!
