Following on from five hit stage shows and the new acclaimed ITV series, GRACE, the work of best selling author, Peter James returns to The Lowry, with the world premiere stage adaption of WISH YOU WERE DEAD.
An all star cast includes George Rainsford, who returns to the stage after nine years as Ethan Hardy in BBC One’s Casualty, Clive Mantle, much loved for many roles including Casualty, Game of Thrones and the iconic ‘puddle’ scene in Vicar of Dibley and award winning actress Katie McGlynn, star of Coronation Street, Waterloo Road and Strictly Come Dancing.
When Detective Superintendent Roy Grace and Cleo Morey take their first holiday together, they hope for a few days away from their everyday worlds of murder and the mortuary. But their dream escape turns out to be the holiday from hell.
Adapted exclusively for the stage, Wish You Were Dead is the latest thrilling instalment of the Grace Series – the most successful modern day crime stage franchise, since Agatha Christie.
