Why See Wish You Were Dead?


DSI Grace returns

Starring Giovanna Fletcher, Clive Mantle, George Rainsford and Leon Stewart 

Peter James' thrilling saga of DSI Roy Grace continues with this brand new theatrical adaptation, the sixth installment to make it to the stage. In another chilling story, Grace and his partner Cleo Morey have finally found the time to head to their dream holiday house in France. But all is not as it seems, as someone from Grace's past is looking for revenge, and what better way to get it than when the Detective is off Duty...

In addition to being the subject of the most successful crime stage franchise since Agatha Christie, DSI Grace also appears in ITV's new series 'Grace' and of course, 18 books by Peter James.
