TWO famous faces from soapland are heading to the Wyvern Theatre next month.

Adam Woodyatt – who plays Ian Beale in EastEnders – and Gaynor Faye of Coronation Street and Emmerdale will be bringing the world premiere of Peter James crime novel stage adaption Looking Good Dead to Swindon

Woodyatt stars as Tom Bryce with Faye as Kellie Bryce. The story revolves around Woodyatt’s character accidentally witnessing a murder and putting his family in danger as a result. 

“I’m really looking forward to being part of this show," said Woodyatt. "I’ve have read Looking Good Dead and really enjoyed it. Like the previous plays have done, I’m hoping that the show will appeal to both fans of Peter James’ novels and many more people who perhaps, like me, are not massive readers.

“When I read the book, I was kept guessing the entire time, and I hope we can bring that excitement to audiences in the theatre.”

The show will run from September 20-25.
