Former Coronation Street Actor, Oliver Mellor, is set to take a role in Dial ‘M’ for Murder this autumn at Brighton’s Emporium on London Road.

Mellor began his career on stage before moving to television appearing in Dr Who, Skins, Hollyoaks, Midsummer Murders, and then landing the role of Dr Matt Carter in Coronation Street in 2010.

Since then he has appeared as James Heriot in the stage adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small and the UK tour of A Murder has been announced starring Anita Harris.

James Weisz, the venue’s artistic director, says: “We are extremely excited to have a talent such as Oliver come and perform in our venue, and for such a long run.” 

Dial ‘M’ for Murder is a taught thriller by Fredrick Knott. Ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice wants to have his wealthy wife, Margot, murdered so he can get his hands on her inheritance. When he discovers she is having an affair he comes up with the perfect plan to kill her.
