Not Dead Enough: Bord Gais Energy Theatre

The thrilling Not Dead Enough is coming to Bord Gais Energy Theatre on Tuesday 18 April until Saturday 22 April.

Shane Richie will join Laura Whitmore and Bill Ward in Not Dead Enough. Shane will be performing as DS Roy Grace in 4 shows only across Friday 21 and Saturday 22 April, with Bill Ward appearing in all other performances from 18 to 20 April inclusive.

On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was sixty miles away, asleep in bed. At least that’s what he claims. But as Detective Superintendent Roy Grace continues to deal with the mysterious disappearance of his own wife, he starts to dig a little deeper into the chilling murder case and it soon becomes clear that love can be a dangerous thing…

Shane Richie has played numerous roles on stage and screen and is perhaps best known for his role as Alfie Moon in BBC TV’s EastEnders. He will next be seen on screen in his upcoming role in Redwater, a six-part series based on EastEnders’ characters Kat and Alfie Moon as they embark on a new life in Ireland, which is set to broadcast in early 2017.

As well as his 3 year run and a recent explosive exit from his role as Emmerdale favourite James Barton (2013-2016), Bill Ward is perhaps also best known for his multi award-winning turn as the villainous Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street (2003-2007). Bill’s West End stage credits include Johnny in Viva Forever (Piccadilly Theatre) and Sam Phillips in Million Dollar Quartet.

No stranger to theatre, Laura Whitmore’s acting career began at a young age with the Leinster School of Music and Drama in Dublin. In the very same year that she completed her Diploma in Performance with a special honour for her final performance she was chosen as the new face of MTV Europe. Laura is best known for her work as a presenter for MTV, The Brits, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Here Now, and most recently for gracing our screens as one of the stars in 2016’s Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1.

Not Dead Enough - Laura Whitmore says hello.


Shane, Bill and Laura are also joined on stage by award winning actor Stephen Billington, best known for television roles in Coronation Street and Hollyoaks as well as film roles including the Academy Award winning Braveheart.

Not Dead Enough is the third novel in the award winning Roy Grace series and now becomes the third play in his box office smash hit and critically acclaimed stage franchise. James has been acclaimed as ‘one of the most fiendishly clever crime fiction plotters’ (Daily Mail) and his brilliant international bestselling Roy Grace novels have been published in 36 languages and sold over 18 million copies worldwide.

Following the success of The Perfect Murder with Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace at Bord Gáis Energy theatre last year, NOT DEAD ENOUGH will reunite Peter James with theatre producer Joshua Andrews, the Olivier award winning director Ian Talbot and award winning writer Shaun McKenna.
