Dial M For Murder, the thriller by Alfred Hitchcock, has been rewritten in Mandarin by Milford producer/playwright Yabing Liu of I-start Chinese Theatre.

In Yabing’s hands, Hitchcock’s classic story about a husband who plans to murder his rich, adulterous wife, is transformed into an equally suspenseful Chinese thriller set in Shanghai.

Since its establishment in 2014, I-start Chinese Theatre has presented three original plays. All received great reviews from audiences, Chinese Media and local media.
I-start Theatre’s first play, Nice to Meet You, was a great success on its debut sea-son at The PumpHouse, and was even reported on by CCTV in Beijing. The second play, 56 Chang De Road, was also a hit in the local Chinese community.

I-start Theatre aims to give Chinese amateur theatre performers a stage on which to show their talents, and at the same time provide original stories inspired by real life, to entertain and inspire audiences of all cultures.

冰点话剧社成立于2014年9月26日,在短短三年间已经出品了三部原创话剧以及一部改编经典剧,成员已经发展到近百人。第一部原创情感话剧Nice to Meet You在the Pump House 首演即在华社引起轰动,本地主要华语媒体和中国官方媒体都报道了新西兰第一家华人剧社演出成功的消息。2016年的第二部原创悬疑剧“常德路56号”也获得了广泛的好评。而根据诗人顾城的感情生活创作的《一个诗人的故事》被称为冰点成立以来的经典之作。冰点话剧社的目标是给奥克兰的话剧业余爱好者一个实现梦想的舞台,同时用最贴近生活的原创话剧给观众以精神上的娱乐与启迪。
