We are very much looking forward to a night on the edge of our seats in June when we go to see Dial M for Murder at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn.

The brand-new production of the classic thriller, based on Frederick Knott’s stage and screen play and made world-famous by Hitchcock’s iconic 1954 film, is directed by Anthony Banks.

Television and stage favourite Tom Chambers, from Top Hat and 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 Samantha Womack, from The Girl on the Train and Eastenders.

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, from Hollyoaks, plays Max Halliday, Margot’s lover.

Director Anthony Banks recent credits include Gaslight and Strangers on a Train. 

His production of the hit thriller, The Girl on the Train, came to Theatre Severn last year and saw Samantha Womack in the leading role of Rachel Watson.

 Theatre Severn Marketing Officer Beki Poole said: “We’re excited to welcome Samantha Womack back to Theatre Severn this June. 

Girl on the Train was a great success at the venue last year and there’s no doubt this thriller will delight all those who enjoy a good seat-gripping drama. Early booking is definitely recommended.”
