Review of House on the Cold Hill by Janet Hale
The play is a supernatural thriller written by the crime writer Peter James. Being a big fan of Peter James crime fiction I was concerned this wouldn't live up to his books, I didn't need to be, the drama and suspense ran right through to the very end.
The story, based on actual events that happened to him and his family, is set in a haunted gothic house. A young family move in and strange things start to happen. There is just one set used right through the play, but with the added twist of up to date technology. There is a very unpredictable twist at the end which I won't give away.
The acting is brilliant throughout and the characters are very believable.
I would highly recommend this play to people who enjoy an evening of drama and suspense.
Peter James’s spine-chilling stage play The House on Cold Hill comes to Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 29 April to Saturday 4 May 2019.
A modern-day ghostly thriller adapted fromthe best-selling 2015 novel and based on the author’s own real-life experience in a haunted house, the play will star BAFTA-nominated actor and winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2017, Joe McFadden(The Crow Road, Heartbeat, Holby City) as ‘Ollie Harcourt’.

The Harcourt family move into the house of their dreams that has stood empty for the last 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…

It becomes the fourth play in James’s 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.
