Producers have announced that Shane Richie will play the role of Roy Grace in the world stage premiere of Peter James’ play Not Dead Enough for the first part of its 2017 tour.
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.
Richie is no stranger to Peter James having appeared opposite Jessie Wallace in the recent tour of The Perfect Murder (Read our review). Richie is perhaps best known to television audiences for his role as Alfie Moon in BBC TV’s Eastenders.
Shane said of Not Dead Enough; “I’m thrilled to be asked to play one of the most interesting and innovative characters of modern times in policing. I’ve never read a Peter James book and not been taken on a journey of menace, excitement and a roller coaster of a journey with all the thrills and chills! It’s an honour to be asked to play Detective Superintendent Roy Grace.”
Not Dead Enough is the third in the series of Roy Grace novels, which have been published in 37 languages and sold over 18 million copies.
Shane Richie will appear in performances of Not Dead Enough until Saturday 15 April 2017 only.
