Not Dead Enough
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 award-winning actor Shane Richie 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…

Admittedly I have never read Peter James multi-million selling Books, or seen any films.
up until now, the theatre brings it more to life, my first murder thriller show was ‘A Rehearsal for Murder’,
and I was pleasantly surprised my review is here
Sitting down we were fairly high up, my worry was hearing them on stage,
but usually, their mic is up loud enough to hear.
The stage was set up in an organised flow;
this meant each scene took minimal time to flow into
there were three sections the back upper part was set as the morgue
the front lower left and right were police station office and police questioning room.
I found it less work for the actors and the flow of the show went with ease.
The opening scene was set with Katie on the phone to her son, who is visiting his father in Canada.
This murder mystery was intriguing all the way through and kept me guessing who the serial killer was of all these women being found.
The twist at the end was cleaver the cast did a brilliant job in their roles, love very much is a dangerous thing indeed.
Brill show ‘Not Dead Enough’ at the @theorchardtheatre bases on @peterjamesuk novels. Starring Shane Richie, Laura whitmore. If you like #murder #thriller this has a great twist. Review being written 😊#notdeadenough
You can book tickets to see the show Friday 27th- 28th Saturday
