Following the huge sell-out success of The Perfect Murder and Dead Simple, the thrilling work of multi-million selling author Peter James returns to the stage with the world premiere production of Not Dead Enough. Starring West End, award-winning actor Bill Ward, famous for his roles in Emmerdale and Coronation Street as DS Roy Grace, Laura Whitmore, one of the stars of 2016’s Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1, and Stephen Billington, best known for roles on Hollyoaks and Coronation Street.
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...
Adapted for the stage by award winning writer Shaun McKenna and directed by Olivier Award winner Ian Talbot, Not Dead Enough is the third novel in Peter James' award winning Roy Grace series and the third play in his box office smash hit and critically acclaimed stage franchise. Peter has been acclaimed as ‘one of the most fiendishly clever crime fiction plotters’ (Daily Mail) and his brilliant novels have sold over 18 million copies worldwide. He is the 2016 recipient of crime writing’s highest honour, the Diamond Dagger.
