A much-loved detective is coming to the stage.

A theatrical adaptation of Peter James’ Dead Simple featuring his famed sleuth detective Roy Grace will stop off in Brighton next year as part of a national tour. The adaption follows the critical and box office success of the production of the Brighton-born author’s novel The Perfect Murder this year.

The play will come to Brighton’s Theatre Royal for a week from Monday February 23. To buy tickets www.atg tickets.com/shows/dead-simple/theatre-royal-brighton.
