Peter James ready to chill with The House on Cold Hill UK Tour

Best selling author Peter James returns to theatres in January with the world premiere production of the spine-tingling stage play The House on Cold Hill.

The House on Cold Hill is the novelist’s fourth play in his box office smash hit, and critically acclaimed, stage franchise following the huge sell-out success of Not Dead Enough, The Perfect Murder and Dead Simple.

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.

Within days of moving into the huge, dilapidated Georgian mansion in the remote Sussex countryside, the Harcourt family quickly realise that the house of their dreams hides a dark secret and that they aren’t the only residents at Cold Hill…

James has been acclaimed as one of the most fiendishly clever crime fiction plotters and his brilliant international bestselling novels have been published in 37 languages and sold over 19 million copies worldwide.

The thriller will reunite Peter James with theatre producer Joshua Andrews, the Olivier award winning director Ian Talbot and award winning writer Shaun McKenna.

Peter James said: “It has been a great thrill for me to have three stage adaptations of my work so cleverly written and brilliantly performed over the last five years, and a joy to see the huge pleasure they’ve given audiences around the UK, and overseas.

“I’m very excited by the latest adaptation, of my best-selling ghost story The House on Cold Hill.

“The intimacy of theatres is particularly well suited to instilling a great atmosphere of suspense and thrills in audiences, and I can promise there will be no shortage of both with the stage production of The House 0n Cold Hill!”
