“Dial M for Marvellous” **** THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

Dial M For Murder

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 starring Christopher Timothy as Inspector Hubbard.

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 Postman Always Rings Twice in the West End and a number of productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company including The Taming of the Shrew, The Winter’s Tale and Julius Caesar which also transferred to New York.
