Dial M For Murder
by Frederick Knott; produced by Peggy Tomlinson
26-28 July 1990
A murder mystery set in London in the 1950s.
Charismatic and manipulative Tony Wendice is a jaded ex-tennis pro who has given it all up for his wife Margot. When he discovers she has been unfaithful, his mind turns to revenge and the pursuit of the ‘perfect crime’, but he becomes more tangled in the web of his own making.
The masterclass in suspense is is full of spine-chilling twists and turns. Already a success as a stage play, it was made even more famous by Hitchcock’s 1954 film.
