Tony is convinced his wife Margot is having an affair and, wracked with jealousy, decides to dispatch her in what he’s convinced is the perfect murder… until, that is, his plan falters in the most unexpected way.

Claustrophobic, edge-of-the-seat stuff, this enthralling new production reclaims Frederick Knott’s intense and darkly gripping story of betrayal and passion.

Famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock, Dial M For Murder comes to the Mercury in a new co-production directed by Lucy Bailey, whose 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.

Christopher Timothy, known to millions as James Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small, plays the role of Inspector Hubbard in this classic tale of murder most intricate.

You won’t be able to tear yourself away from the stage.
