Adapted by award winning writer Shaun Mckenna and directed by Olivier award winner Ian Talbot, Not Dead Enough will have you on the edge of your seat and guessing right to the end. Don’t miss your chance to see the world premiere tour of the UK’s newest box office hit - it’s simply to-die-for!

The critical consensus

The actors under the direction of Ian Talbot are tight enough to sell the drama and paper over the occasional moment of misjudged tone. And, vitally, this thriller does have real thrills. Not Dead Enough isn’t perfect, but if you could murder a fun show, you could do a lot worse.

This production never manages to shake the corny, missing some subtleties in character charisma and the perfect opportunity to transport us away in the grip of gruesome terror in a climactic scene, which came over more like a panto ripping off James Bond.

Ian Talbot's production sustains its energy levels against the odds.
