Joe McFadden is set to star in a new stage adaptation of Peter James’ spine-chilling thriller The House on Cold Hill.

The BAFTA nominated actor and winner of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing 2017 will star as family man ‘Ollie Harcourt’ whose new dream home quickly sours as he begins to realise his family aren’t the only residents at Cold Hill.

Joe McFadden is perhaps best known for playing series regular ‘Raf di Lucca in BBC1’s Holby City from 2014 – 2017, and as ‘P C Joe Mason’ in Heartbeat from 2010 – 2014.  Other TV roles include Sex, Chips and Rock n Roll, The Crow Road (for which he received a BAFTA nomination), Cranford and Take The High Road.

McFadden’s stage credits include The Missing (National Theatre of Scotland), Alan Ayckbourn’s Haunting Julia (UK tour), Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song Trilogy (Menier Chocolate Factory) and Rent (Shaftesbury Theatre).

The House on Cold Hill becomes the 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 on stage.

The UK tour opens on 23 January 2019 at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford followed by dates in Nottingham, Shrewsbury, Coventry, Malvern, Portsmouth, Brighton, Norwich, Newcastle, Hull, Southend, Richmond, Milton Keynes, Woking, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Cambridge and Glasgow.

Further casting to be announced.
