Bill Kenwright presents the nationwide tour of the spine-tingling live production of The Exorcist, based on the best-selling novel by William Peter Blatty. Inspired by true events, this devilishly thrilling tale has been adapted for stage by John Pielmeier and directed by Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot, No Man’s Land), featuring the voice of Ian McKellen as the Demon.

When the medical profession fails to provide answers to young Regan’s strange symptoms, her desperate mother Chris turns to a local priest for help. But before Father Damien can tackle what’s before him, he must overcome his own shaken beliefs, as this fight is for more than just one girl’s soul…

William Friedkin’s 1973 Academy Award-winning film adaption of The Exorcist thrilled audiences across the globe and gained a huge cult following. Now, 45 years after the film’s release, fans of the film and theatre alike get to experience a visually astounding, intelligent and haunting theatrical experience.

This is the authorised stage version of one of the most controversial and successful films of all time and it is terrifying…It is blasphemous… it contains graphic scenes and graphic language… It is definitely not for the faint-hearted… or easily offended!

Olivier Award-winning director Sean Mathias has created an outstanding piece of theatre featuring a stellar cast. It is going to scare and shock you! Are you brave enough?!

This production is not suitable for anyone under the age of 15 or for those of a nervous disposition
