Middle Ground Theatre Company Ltd is delighted to present the World Stage Premiere of “Dial M For Mayhem”, a brand new charming farcical comedy drama from the author and director of the hugely successful courtroom phenomenon “The Verdict.”

A rollicking comical and poignant yarn set in 1991 of a group of travelling actors from south of the Scottish border as they conquer the beautiful unforgiving landscape of the Highlands and Islands village hall circuit to bring those remote tranquil communities Frederick Knott’s classic 1950’s thriller “Dial M For Murder”.

Set against a backdrop of the unpredictable Scottish weather complete with internal company squabbling, the antics of a shepherd and his TV watching sheep dog, a flatulent ageing soap star and a long lost caber tossing love. Add to the mix a twinkle-eyed AA man and a missing child’s pet black rat called Norman, and the scene is gleefully set for back stage chaos and laugh-out loud hilarity of the play within the play!


★★★★★ “This beautifully crafted and fast paced script…..Margaret May Hobbs has aced it.”

★★★★★ “Rarely do we get to see such engaging drama on stage and I urge you to get along to Malvern this week whilst you have the opportunity... enthralling.”
