A woman alone, a darkened room, a drawn curtain: the stage has been set for a perfectly planned murder – and all that’s needed to set it in motion is the ring of the telephone.

Tanat Theatre’s production of Frederick Knott’s Dial M for Murder is the perfect thriller for the winter season: its tightly knitted plot sees the ingenuity of a detective-story scriptwriter vying with the quick-thinking of a sporting champion in a game of wits with deadly intent and unexpected consequences.

Dial M for Murder will be staged in The Green School Little Theatre, Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant, on the evenings of 25th & 26th January, and 1st & 2nd, 8th & 9th February; tickets cost £7 for adults, and will be available from the usual outlets, or from Izzy Roberts on 01691 860398.
