Dial M For Murder

Lucy Bailey’s new version of Frederick Knott’s Dial M For Murder, famously adapted for the screen by Alfred Hitchcock, is incredibly stylish, with red curtains and a subtle revolving stage. It pays homage to Hitchcock’s classic thriller, but doesn’t overly rely on it, and is gripping throughout, thanks to a talented bunch of actors.

I saw this touring production at Richmond, a theatre well suited for the piece. It’s old-fashioned now, perhaps, but still worth watching.
