An extra matinee has been added for the world premiere production of the spine-chilling stage play The House on Cold Hill, adapted from the best-selling 2015 novel of multi-million selling author Peter James.


Overwhelming demand for tickets for the touring production at Worthing’s Connaught Theatre led to adding a performance next Friday.


Based on the author’s own experience in a haunted house, the play will star BAFTA-nominated actor and winner of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing, Joe McFadden as Ollie Harcourt and joining him, as his wife Caro Harcourt, will be award winning actors Rita Simons, Charlie Clements, as Chris, and Persephone Swales-Dawson, as Jade.


In Peter’s ghostly mystery, the Harcourt family move into the house of the dreams which h as been empty for 40 years. However, their dream home quickly turns into the stuff of nightmares, as they begin to sense that they aren’t the only residents at Cold Hill…


The House on Cold Hill will reunite Peter with two-time Olivier-nominated theatre producer Joshua Andrews, the Olivier award winning director Ian Talbot and award-winning writer Shaun McKenna.


McFadden is perhaps best known for playing series regular Raf di Lucca in BBC1’s Holby City from 2014 – 2017, and as PC Joe Mason in Heartbeat from 2010 – 2014. He partnered Katya Jones in BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing and captured the nation’s hearts, eventually winning the series to become the 2017 champion.


Simons played Roxy Mitchell in BBC’s EastEnders from 2007-17, and is one of Britain’s best loved TV actresses. Clements was also in the soap from 2006-2010, winning several awards for his performance as Bradley Manning, while Swales-Dawson played serial killer Nico Blake in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks from 2014-16.
