Dial M For Murder by Frederick Knott, which is directed by Lucy Bailey, will play at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley Tuesday 25th March – Saturday 29th March.
The show returns to the stage following its hugely successful premiere in 2009.
Made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film version, Dial M For Murder tells the story of the cold and calculating Tony Wendice who is convinced his wife is having an affair. He sets out to plan and execute the perfect murder … until it falters in the most unexpected way. Claustrophobic and frightening, Lucy Bailey’s production reclaims this brilliant and erotic tale of betrayal, passion and ultimately, murder.
Christopher Timothy plays the role of Inspector Hubbard. He is best known for his TV roles as vet James Herriott in All Creatures Great and Small and as Doctor Mac McGuire in BBC’s long-running daytime show Doctors. Kelly Hotten plays the role of Sheila Wendice. Other roles are played by Daniel Betts, Philip Cairns and Robert Perkins.
Director Lucy Bailey has worked for many of the country’s leading theatre and opera companies including the Royal National Theatre, Glyndebourne Opera and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. One of her most recent directing credits includes the critically acclaimed production of The Winter’s Tale for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Tickets are available through ATG.
