The Exorcist

“I’m telling you that ‘thing’ upstairs isn’t my daughter…”

The thrilling best-selling novel.
The chilling Oscar-winning film.
The terrifying new stage production.
 
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 two time Oscar-winning movie of this story has terrified generations the world over since its release in 1973. Now unleashed onto the West End stage for the very first time in a uniquely theatrical experience directed by award-winning film and theatre Director Sean Mathias (Bent, No Man’s Land). 
 
Starring one of the UK’s most respected actresses Jenny Seagrove as Chris MacNeil, whose prolific theatre career has seen her play the lead in almost every West End playhouse, with recent credits including How The Other Half Loves and The Country Girl. Jenny recently starred in the film Another Mother’s Son and is also known to millions of TV viewers as QC Jo Mills in ITV’s BAFTA winning Judge John Deed
 
Peter Bowles, stars as Father Merrin. His West End theatre credits include Hay Fever with Judi Dench and Archie Rice in John Osborne’s The Entertainer. He is probably best remembered for playing Richard DeVere in the hit BBC comedy series To The Manor Born. Joining them is Hollywood actor Adam Garcia as Father Damien, whose films include Coyote Ugly and Riding In Cars With Boys.

Inspired by true events.
