I’m telling you that ‘thing’ upstairs isn’t my daughter…”
Inspired by true events, The Exorcist is William Peter Blatty’s best-selling novel, which captured the attention of an entire generation. Adapted into a highly controversial 1973 horror film, the terrifying tale is unleashed into the West End for the first time ever, in a unique theatrical experience that is bound to petrify London audiences.
When a young girl is bed-ridden by a strange illness, her desperate mother, Chris, calls in everyone she can to help. But when the medical profession cannot provide any answers to Regan’s symptoms, Chris is forced to turn to the local priest. Father Damien must do all he can to overcome his shaken beliefs to tackle the demons before him. After all, he may be fighting for more than just one girl’s soul…
Award-winning film and theatre director Sean Mathias leads the production, which is set to play at the Phoenix Theatre throughout autumn and winter. Widely considered to be one of the scariest stories of all time, William Friedkin’s two-time Academy Award-winning masterpiece shocked audiences into fainting, and went on to become one of the top ten highest grossing films of all time.
Now, The Exorcist creeps on to the Phoenix Theatre stage for a strictly limited season, just in time for a very chilling Halloween.
