Following the incredible sell-out stage success of Not Dead Enough, The Perfect Murder and Dead Simple, the No. 1 best-selling author Peter James is back with this spine-tingling new world premiere play.

Starring BAFTA nominated actor Joe McFadden (The Crow Road, Heartbeat, Holby City, and winner of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing 2017) and award winning actress Rita Simons (who played the iconic 'Roxy Mitchell' in Eastenders), this world premier production based on Peter’s own real-life experience, tells the story of the Harcourt family, who move into the house of their dreams; an old, dilapidated Georgian mansion that has been empty for the last 40 years. However, their dream home quickly turns into the stuff of nightmares as they begin to realise they aren’t the only residents at Cold Hill...

Also staring Charlie Clements ('Bradley' in Eastenders) and Persephone Swales-Dawson (villainess 'Nico Blake' in Hollyoaks); The House on Cold Hill is a modern day ghostly thriller that will send shivers down your spine and make you think twice about returning home to a dark, empty house after the show!
