Background


"I'm telling you that 'thing' upstairs isn't my daughter …"


Winner of two Academy Awards, and widely considered the scariest movie of all time, the film adaptation of The Exorcist sparked unprecedented worldwide controversy when it was released in cinemas in 1973.


Forty-five years after William Peter Blatty's best-selling novel terrified an entire generation, The Exorcist is 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).


Note: the production contains material which may shock and offend.
