PICS: Laura Whitmore takes to the stage in Dublin for opening of Not Dead Enough

Following the huge success of The Perfect Murder, the thrilling work of multi-million selling author Peter James will return to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with the world premiere production of Not Dead Enough.

Award-winning actor Shane Richie is now set to star alongside Laura Whitmore (playing the role of Cleo Morey) in selected performances only, sharing the role of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace with another multi award winning actor, Bill Ward, who recently left ITV’s Emmerdale in an explosive exit.

Richie will be performing the role of DS Roy Grace in four shows only across Friday 21 and Saturday 22 April, with Ward appearing in all other performances from 18 to 20 April inclusive.

Shane, Bill and Laura are also joined on stage by award winning actor Stephen Billington, best known for television roles in Coronation Street and Hollyoaks as well as film roles including the Academy Award winning Braveheart.

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...

NOT DEAD ENOUGH is 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 18 million copies worldwide.

This production will reunite Peter James with theatre producer Joshua Andrews, the Olivier award winning director Ian Talbot and award winning writer Shaun McKenna.
