Dial M For Murder To Play At The New Vic Theatre In Newcastle Under Lyme

The New Vic Theatre’s Summer season continues from Friday 28 April to Saturday 20 May with a gripping new version of Dial M for Murder, Frederick Knott’s masterpiece of writing.

This brand new production of the classic drama is a 360˚ thriller – staged in-the-round, audiences will be able to watch the story unfold from all sides of the action, heightening the gripping twists, turns and suspense of the production.

Memorably turned into a much-loved film by Alfred Hitchcock in the 1950s, the New Vic now brings the action back to the stage.

Glamorous socialite Sheila Wendice has it all: a wide circle of friends, an exciting lifestyle and a husband who dotes on her.

When an old friend visits from overseas, she sends him off with her husband to enjoy a night on the town and curls up in bed for an early night. Then the phone rings and Sheila’s evening takes a dramatic turn…

Suddenly she finds herself fighting for her life. But who could want her dead?

Rehearsals are going tremendously well for Dial M For Murder and we have some snazzy shots of the cast in action.
