The Perfect Murder is a play adapted by Shaun McKenna from the Peter James novella, for which Laura wrote the music. Directed by Ian Talbot, it has toured the UK twice so far, with a third run scheduled to begin in February 2016.
Victor Smiley and his wife Joan have been married for a long time. But their marriage has reached crisis point and Victor has decided there is only one way to get Joan out of his life forever… but he’s about to get a nasty surprise… As a young Detective Roy Grace starts to investigate his very first homicide case, dark forces intervene and Grace begins to fear that nothing is quite as it seems.
Praise for The Perfect Murder
“Any murder mystery has to have suitably creepy music and composer Laura Tisdall hits all the right notes (and definitely in the right order).”
– British Theatre Guide
“Both the evocative original soundtrack courtesy of up and coming young composer Laura Tisdall and the multi-level set by Michael Holt are deserving of praise and are particularly effective in setting the atmosphere and helping to drive the storyline. This is an evening of thrilling escapist fun.”
