DEAD SIMPLE at Alexandra Theatre

August 4, 2015

I am afraid I thought Peter James’ play adapted from his novel DEAD SIMPLE on tour at the Alex in Birmingham was simply dead awful! Take a very popular detective novel and cast with TV soap stars and a ridiculous wobbly set that would be more at home in a parody of a TV soap and hey presto. However, this romp was at least interesting, as the incredulity of the complex and convoluted story unfolding before our very eyes gave us a good laugh, a bit like a terrible magic act. The audience must have been ardent Peter James fans because they loved it.
