The thriller - based on Frederick Knott’s stage and screen play, made world-famous by Hitchcock’s iconic 1954 film - will be directed by Anthony Banks.
Television and stage favourite, Tom Chambers, best known for Top Hat and Strictly, stars as the charismatic and manipulative Tony Wendice, a jaded ex-tennis pro who has given it all up for his wife Margot, played by Diana Vickers from the West End’s Little Voice and The X Factor.
When he discovers she has been unfaithful his mind turns to revenge and the pursuit of the ‘perfect crime’.
Christopher Harper from Coronation Street and Strangers on a Train performs in the dual roles of Captain Lesgate and Inspector Hubbard and Michael Salami of Hollyoaks as Max Halliday, Margot’s lover.
Anthony Banks directs Dial M For Murder, adding to credits that recently include Gaslight, Strangers on a Train and his production of the hit thriller, The Girl on the Train, which ran at Theatre Severn in 2019.
Theatre Severn’s Marketing Officer Beki Poole said: “Following the postponement of the production in June 2020, we’re so happy to finally be able welcome the cast and crew of Dial M for Murder to Shrewsbury this September. There’s no doubt this thriller will delight all those who enjoy a good seat-gripping drama - it’s not too late to book tickets!”
