Background


Following a critically acclaimed UK tour, the brand-new stage adaptation of Captain Corelli's Mandolin transfers to the West End for a strictly limited nine-week season.


Based on the best-selling novel that inspired the hit film, Captain Corelli's Mandolin is an unforgettable love story set on the Greek island of Cephallonia against the turbulent backdrop of World War II.


Marking the 25th anniversary of the novel's original publication, Olivier and Tony Award-nominated director Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and adapter Rona Munro (The James Plays) bring this epic story vividly to life on stage.


Synopsis

A cast of fifteen actors and singers bring Louis de Bernières' epic novel dramatically to life.
