About The Exorcist

“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-six 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).

Voicing the demon will be Olivier Award-winner Ian McKellen. 

“Oh please, Mother, make it stop! It's hurting.”

When multiple medical professionals fail 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…

Inspired by true events.
