Not Dead Enough UK Tour

Book tickets for Not Dead Enough UK Tour

Following the sell-out successes of The Perfect Murder and Dead Simple on stage and his 11th consecutive Sunday Times No 1 Best-Selling Book, Peter James returns to theatres in January 2017 with the world premiere of Not Dead Enough.

Not Dead Enough was the third novel in the award-winning Roy Grace series and now becomes the third play in his box office smash hit and critically acclaimed stage franchise. James has been acclaimed as ‘one of the most fiendishly clever crime fiction plotters’ (Daily Mail) and his brilliant international bestselling Roy Grace novels have been published in 36 languages and sold over 17 million copies worldwide.

Following the nationwide success of The Perfect Murder with Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace earlier this year, Not Dead Enough will reunite Peter James with theatre producer Joshua Andrews, the Olivier award-winning director Ian Talbot and award winning writer Shaun McKenna. Peter James says of Not Dead Enough;

“I am thrilled to be working with Josh Andrews again – he has turned my books into smash hits on stage and it’s been a joy for me to see that happen. Not Dead Enough is one of my favourite Roy Grace novels, and it has been a hugely exciting journey to see just how brilliantly Shaun McKenna has once again adapted the twists and turns for the stage.  Shaun and Ian Talbot did such a great job with The Perfect Murder and Dead Simple and I am looking forward to them sprinkling their magic dust on another of my stories.”

On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was sixty miles away, asleep in bed. At least that’s what he claims. But as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace continues to deal with the mysterious disappearance of his own wife, he starts to dig a little deeper into the chilling murder case and it soon becomes clear that love can be a dangerous thing.

Shane Richie will play the role of Roy Grace until 15 April 2017, after which Bill Ward will join fellow cast members Laura Whitmore and Stephen Billington.
