Strictly winner to star in thriller coming to Theatre Severn
A brand-new production of the classic thriller, Dial M for Murder, comes to Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn (owned and run by Shropshire Council) on Monday 6 – Saturday 11 September 2021. The genre-defining 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.
TV and stage favourite, Tom Chambers, (Top Hat, Strictly Come Dancing) 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 (West End’s Little Voice, The X Factor). When he discovers she has been unfaithful his mind turns to revenge and the pursuit of the ‘perfect crime’. Christopher Harper (Coronation Street, Strangers on a Train) performs in the dual roles of Captain Lesgate and Inspector Hubbard and Michael Salami (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.
Beki Poole, Theatre Severn’s marketing officer, 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 next month. 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!”
