Hollyoaks star staring death in the face
Dead Simple features Michael Harrison who thinks he has it all; great career, good friends and a beautiful fiancée.
But when his stag night prank goes horribly wrong, Michael finds himself alone and staring death in the face. As time runs out and the terror grows, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace begins to fear that Michael will never be found in time.
The show is the second of Peter James’ novels to be adapted for the stage following on from last year’s The Perfect Murder.
Tina Hobley returns to the stage after 12 years as ward sister Chrissie Williams in BBC One’s Holby City as well as appearing in Celebrity Master Chef earlier this year. Tina currently presents the prime time Sunday morning programme on Smooth FM.
TV heartthrob Jamie Lomas has, for the past year, starred in EastEnders as the murderous Jake Stone and before that played bad boy Warren Fox for five years in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks.
Gray O’Brien, the award-winning star of Coronation Street, TV series Titanic, Peak Practice and Casualty as well as Sleuth in the West End, will follow up his critically acclaimed performance in The Perfect Murder by once again playing the famous Detective Roy Grace in this gripping thriller that has all the classic suspense, twists and turns of a best-selling Peter James novel.
The cast is completed by Emmerdale’s Rik Makaram and Doctors star Michael McKell.
Dead Simple can be seen at Milton Keynes Theatre from Monday, June 8, to Saturday, June 13.
Tickets for the show can be booked by calling the box office on 0844 871 7652 or visit www.atgtickets.co.uk/miltonkeynes.
