Join DSI Roy Grace and Cleo Morley as they take their first family holiday together and a well earned break from their crime solving exploits.

Desperate for a bit of fun in the sun, they set off to France for a week of rest and relaxation, but things don’t go entirely to plan. When the humorous French hostess greets them at the eerie chateau they’ve booked in to, they begin to wonder if their week in paradise might become the holiday from hell.

Featuring a spectacular set with a few surprises and an all star cast including Clive Mantle, George Rainsford as Roy Grace and Katie McGlynn, Wish You Were Dead is a dark comedy thriller that takes the audience on a thrilling and entertaining adventure, as Grace unexpectedly finds himself totally out of his comfort zone and right in the line of fire.
