Dial M for MurderUK Tour 2014

When murder calls… hang up.

Frederick Knott’s intense and darkly gripping thriller, Dial M for Murder, famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock, will begin a UK tour in February 2014.

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. Set in a claustrophobic and frightening environment, 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 starring Val Kilmer, the National Theatre’s West End transfer of Baby Doll as well as the recent critically acclaimed RSC debut of Julius Caesar. She was nominated for an Evening Standard award earlier this year for Best Director for Timon of Athens at Globe.
