"Shaun McKenna’s adaptation of Peter James’s novel, The Perfect Murder is perfectly cast, perfectly pitched between thriller and black comedy, and perfectly gripping for its two hours duration."


"There are enough twists and turns in the plot to keep you guessing until the end and there were plenty of chuckles on the opening night, with some of the darker moments of comedy drawing gasps from the audience."

"Shaun McKenna has done a remarkable job, both in keeping faithful to the tone and the events in the novel but adding whole new dimensions to turn this story into something theatrical.  I feel very lucky to have had

such a brilliant playwright take this ball

and run with it..."
