Wish You Were Dead follows the adventures of DSI Roy Grace and the crimes around the Brighton area - the series has become a hit drama on ITV.

Speaking about heading out on the road Giovanna said: “I’m really looking forward to appearing on stage as Cleo in this brand new play, and excited to work with George and Clive - two wonderful actors I’ve heard great things about.

"As a novelist, I know how important the characters I create are to me, so I’m thrilled Peter James has entrusted me with this wonderful role, in what is another brilliant and gripping story from one of the greatest masters of crime thrillers!”

Wish You Were Dead plays at Newcastle Theatre Royal from Mon 13 – Sat 18 Mar 2023. Tickets are priced from £15.00 and can be purchased here or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
