Grace is back as a new stage adaptation of Peter James’ Wish You Were Dead hits the road for a UK tour in 2023 – here’s all you need to know.

From the Wish You Were Dead tour tickets to all the upcoming dates and venues, this is your guide to the show on the road.

Adapted exclusively for the stage, the world premiere of ‘Wish You Were Dead’ will kick off a major five-month nationwide UK tour in February 2023 at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley.

When Detective Superintendent Roy Grace and Cleo Morey take their first holiday together, Cleo hopes that she will finally get Grace to herself for a few days and away from his crime solving exploits.

Casting for the show is to be revealed.

The stage play has been adapted by award winning writer Shaun McKenna, who has adapted the five previous Peter James plays, with Jonathan O’Boyle directing, Design by Michael Holt, Lighting by Jason Taylor and Sound by Max Pappenheim.

Peter James said: “I have always loved live theatre, so it’s been thrilling to watch how much audiences around the UK have loved the plays. Theatre and the escapism it provides us all is so important – particularly now.

“Inside the safe cocoon of a theatre, audiences love to be on the edge of their seats and sometimes shocked, always hoping when that final curtain falls, order will have been restored and the world will seem just a little bit of a better place.

“I am incredibly grateful for the support regional theatres and their audiences have shown our plays and it will be fantastic to see another one of my books being adapted for the stage – the sixth one! – and audiences enjoying it, in 2023.”
