Peter James’ The Perfect Murder will once again tour the UK next year, opening at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham on 2nd February.
EastEnders stars Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace will appear on stage together for the very first time during a break from filming the BBC1 soap. Directed by Ian Talbot and adapted by Shaun McKenna, the show previously toured in 2014.
Richie and Wallace have starred together in EastEnders for the last 13 years. The duo said: "We are really looking forward to working together on stage as it’s so different to TV.” Richie added, "It’s an honour to be attached to Peter James work as I’m such a fan of his books!" whilst Wallace said, "As soon as I read the script, I knew I had to do it!"
Victor Smiley and his wife Joan have been married for a long time. But their marriage has reached crisis point and Victor has decided there is only one way to get Joan out of his life forever... but he’s about to get a nasty surprise... As a young Detective Roy Grace starts to investigate his very first homicide case, dark forces intervene and Grace begins to fear that nothing is quite as it seems quite as it seems...
