The actor will appear in the classic Victorian thriller from February 26 to March 2 after his recent stint in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!

He will be joined by Peter Amory, who played Chris Tate in Emmerdale, and Karen Ford who will be remembered as art teacher Miss Booth in Grange Hill.

The play follows the story of Walter Hartright, a handsome teacher, who is assailed by the Woman in White on a London road at midnight where she pleads with him for his help to prevent her from being taken to an asylum. She disappears just as suddenly as she appears, but this first unsettling encounter is the beginning of a long journey which takes Walter to the darkest continents of his heart.

Love, suspense and danger all combine to create this a haunting mystery of mistaken identities and stolen fortunes, heroism, high drama and volatile passions.

Tickets start at £15 and can be booked online at or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
