BWW Review: THE PERFECT MURDER, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, March 29 2016BWW Review: THE PERFECT MURDER, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, March 29 2016
by Jenny Ell - Mar 30, 2016

Back in February 2014, I watched the first touring production of Peter James' novel The Perfect Murder starring Les Dennis and Claire Goose as unhappily married couple Victor and Joan Smiley. Following this, Dead Simple - another of James' books - was adapted for the stage; here testament to his appeal and ability to make the text jump off the stage and stand up dramatically. The Perfect Murder is now playing across the UK again but this time with an ingenious casting move. Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace or Kat and Alfie from BBC's Eastenders are playing the two leads.

BWW Reviews: DEAD SIMPLE, New Alexandra Theatre Birmingham, June 29 2015BWW Reviews: DEAD SIMPLE, New Alexandra Theatre Birmingham, June 29 2015
by Jenny Antill - Jun 30, 2015

Peter James is synonymous when referring to crime fiction. Following the acclaim received by the stage adaptation of A Perfect Murder last year, Dead Simple is the next novel to receive the same treatment (adapted by Shaun McKenna). The book was an overnight sensation and is now a number one best-seller so it was clearly an obvious choice for the producers. Based on James' research, it seems that the vast majority of people fear fear itself. Breaking this down further, the fear of being alone and in this story's case, being buried alive. This is a seemingly universal fear that James experienced head on when writing this book! (more...)
