Having recently received the prestigious acclaim of being Her Majesty the Queen’s favourite literary Detective, Superintendent Roy Grace is back, in a brand new play, for the seventh Peter James stage adaptation and world premiere of the bestselling PICTURE YOU DEAD.

Back home in Brighton, DSI Grace investigates a cold case that leads him to the rarified air of fine art but beneath the respectable veneer lurks a dark underworld of greed, deception and murder.

When one unsuspecting couple unearth a potentially long lost masterpiece, they discover that their dream find is about to turn into their worst nightmare and only Grace can stop them from paying the ultimate price.

With a total of 20 Sunday Times best sellers to his name, as well as the acclaimed ITV series, GRACE, this latest thrilling stage adaptation cements Peter James’s Grace Series, as the most successful modern day crime stage franchise, since Agatha Christie.


“A great evening out, and another success for the Peter James franchise, look out Agatha, he’s trying to catch you up!”
