Review: Dial M for Murder, at the King's Theatre

Dial M for Murder, playing at Edinburgh’s King’s Theatre as part of a UK tour, is an enjoyable adaption of Frederick Knott’s classic thriller. Affairs, revenge, plotting and deception – this play has it all, but struggles to stand out.

Once a year, Edinburgh’s Scouts and Girlguides come together to perform in a Gang Show, a production which showcases the young people’s diverse range of talents. The incredible amount of work that has gone into this year’s show – the 60th Edinburgh Gang Show – is instantly clear. The production is a great celebration of all the talented young people involved, with fantastic musical accompaniment and off-stage support.
