TV Favourites Tina Hobley and Jamie Lomas star in the stage premier of Dead Simple at the Belgrade Theatre.

Based on the international best-selling novel by Peter James, it will brought to life on stage in Coventry from January 26 until Saturday.

The plot centres on the successful man with the great career, good friends and a beautiful fiancée – but when a stag night prank goes horribly wrong, he finds himself alone, buried alive and staring death in the face.

Hobley returns to the stage having been ward sister Chrissie Williams in the BBC 1’s Holby City for the past 12 years.

TV heartthrob Lomas is known for his role as Jake Stone in EastEnders and bad boy Warren Fox in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks, a role he played for five years.

Billed as a “gripping and chilling” thriller, Gray O’Brien, who played murderous factory boss Tony Gordon in Coronation Street, is the police detective racing against time to find the victim.

Others in the cast include Rik Makarem (Emmerdale and Torchwood) and Michael 
McKell (Doctors and Emmerdale).
