Preview: Dial ‘M’ For Murder at Newcastle People’s Theatre




“I even thought of killing her,
and that seemed a far more sensible idea.”

Dial ‘M’ For Murder by Frederick Knott
Newcastle People’s Theatre
Tuesday 21 – Saturday 25 January 2020



Max (Robbie Close) & Margo (Alison Carr)
Fading tennis star Tony Wendice married his wife Margot for her money and now intends to murder her for the same reason. But can he get away with it?

Lesgate (Tony Sehgal) & Tony (Sean Burnside)
He thinks he’s planned the perfect crime, but things soon go horribly wrong in this gripping tale of greed, blackmail and deceit.

Tony (Sean Burnside) & Margo (Alison Carr)
Considered a classic example of a stage thriller it has been revived on stage a number of times, and while the stage version and film adaptation are very similar, our directors Matt Hope and Jack Thompson are keen to make this classic story from the 1950s relevant to a modern audience.


Lesgate (Tony Sehgal) & Margo (Alison Carr)
Matt comments “revenge, ambition and jealousy are, of course, timeless but we’re also really enjoying exploring the elements of coercive control and power dynamics between the sexes that are present in the script.” 

Lesgate (Tony Sehgal)
Our January thrillers are always popular with audiences, not least last year’s hugely successful Poirot whodunit Black Coffee by Agatha Christie. Dial ‘M’ For Murder promises to be another winter warmer for fans of suspense and intrigue.
