Looking Good Dead 2021 UK tour tickets, dates, venues and cast

Looking Good Dead

A stage adaption of Peter James’ Looking Good Dead will be touring the UK in 2021.

The new play is the fifth of James’ novel to be brought to the stage following The House on Cold Hill with Joe McFadden and Rita Simons in 2019, Not Dead Enough with Shane Richie and Laura Whitmore in 2017, The Perfect Murder with Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace in 2016 and Dead Simple with Tina Hobley in 2015.

A synopsis teases: “No good deed goes unpunished…hours after picking up a USB memory stick, left behind on a train seat, to try to return it to its owner, Tom Bryce inadvertently becomes a witness to a vicious murder.

“Reporting the crime to the police has disastrous consequences, placing him and his family in grave danger. When Detective Superintendent Roy Grace becomes involved, he has his own demons to contend with, while he tries to crack the case in time to save the Bryce family’s lives.”

It has been a tremendous thrill to see my characters so brilliantly brought to life, and it has been quite humbling to have seen such passion and enthusiasm, repeatedly, from audiences around the nation”
