Coronation Street’s Katie McGlynn will be joining the UK tour of Peter James’s Wish You Were Dead, which comes to The Lowry, Salford, May 23–27.

Katie, best known for her role as Sinead Tinker in Corrie, will be taking over the role of Cleo Morey from Giovanna Fletcher.

She will be making her professional stage play debut and joins other cast members George Rainsford (Casualty, Holby City, Call The Midwife) as DSI Roy Grace and Clive Mantle (Game of Thrones, The Vicar of Dibley, Sherlock, Casualty) as Curtis.

Wish You Were Dead follows five successful stage plays and the prime time ITV series Grace, based on the best-selling novels by Peter James.

Wish You Were Dead follows DSI Roy Grace and Cleo Morey as they take a much-needed holiday together. But their dream escape turns out to be the holiday from hell.
