'A storming version of The Exorcist’
‘A genuine crowd pleaser’
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…
The Exorcist, stars national treasure and BAFTA Award Winner, Paul Nicholas, most recognised for playing the role of Vince Pinner in the celebrated British sitcom Just Good Friends, who will play Father Merrin. Sophie Ward, best known for her roles in Holby City and Heartbeat, will play Chris MacNeil, and household name Ben Caplan best known for his time as Sgt. Peter Noakes in Call the Midwife, will play Father Damien.
Inspired by true events, this devilishly thrilling tale has been adapted for stage by John Pielmeier and directed is by Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot, No Man’s Land) in this spine-tingling live production, based on the best-selling novel by William Peter Blatty.
Please note this production contains adult material and scenes of a sexual nature, which may shock and offend.
