The Exorcist description

“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.

A scary theatre original

The Phoenix Theatre is stunning, easy to find and impressive, friendly staff directing people efficiently. Seats are easy to access (we were in the stalls). Bar area and snack stall not too crowded, plenty of staff, prices for drinks and snacks though quite rediculously high. Programme was good and priced at a reasonable £4. The show itself was fantastic, super lighting and music, actors were all amazing, especially Regan. I did find the theatre rather cold so had to put my coat back on half way through. Overall, loved the Phoenix and the show itself was outstanding.

One to watch

I recommended this show for theatregoers as there is not an option for adults only. This is an adult show and not one to watch if you do not like explicit language. We loved the show, the scene changes were seamless and I was quite amazed at how it was done. All of the parts were well acted however Clare Lousie Connolly is absoutely fantastic as Regan. I loved the jumpy parts, my only disappointment was tubular bells was only played for a very short time. I would have liked this to have featured for a bit longer. This is my first play, having seen many musicals and I have to say I am hooked. I cannot wait to choose what I see next.

scary

Do not purchase tickets to either side of the stage as you will be ripped off. we had row A but could only see part of the show. two of our tickets stated restricted view but what they meant is that you only get to see the actors when they are on the left of the stage. you can't see anything else

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish

This was my husbands first time at the theatre and as he does not like musicals, this was perfect. The stage settings were fantastically done and kept our attention throughout. The effects and the acting were wonderful. I jumped quite a few times! It is a smaller theatre so very atmospheric. We had booked stalls row R but were upgraded to row G. I would definitely recommend this show.

Awesome!

This show was awesome. A fantastic change from normal theatre productions in its own unique way. Well worth going to see. Wish it was scheduled for other parts of the country too so that everyone can enjoy it. The atmosphere was amazing, the storyline was true to the film and the acting was fantastic - every character and voice! The special effects were brilliant. A true 5* rating! Well done to all involved.

Wonderfully scary

I enjoyed the play very much. It was well acted and wonderfully scary. Glad the head spinning scene was there and the classic scene of the priest outside looking up at the house. Enjoyed the bang and all the lights going out at the start. Very good.

Amazing show

This show was just fantastic. The cast where faultless.... The set was brilliant, and they even had different smells etc to make it atmospheric. We are going to watch the show again it was that good. Really lovely theatre, when we went to pick up our tickets we were told our seats had been upgraded free of charge, Really great show.

Unpossessed

Difficult to nod off during a rendition of The Exorcist but I managed to so. About as scary as a panda at a safe distance. Peter Bowles looked, at times, as though he was unsure what he was doing here. The much lauded effects were, I'm afraid, of the Heath- Robinson school (without the charm). I could go on....and sorry, but you did ask.

Stick with the movie.

Ok, lets face it, if you've seen the iconic movie, nothing is going to measure up. Much as they tried, this production can't give you the tension needed to make this scary. Take away that and you're left with a plot that is basic at best. The cast are good, solid actors but only Clare Louise Connolly as Regan shines. Seagrove was terrible; one dimensional throughout and her plumby American accent was indecipherable at times. The repeated flash/blackouts became tedious although other stage special effects were good. The real problem here was the audience. Clearly enticed by the movie, groups of twenty somethings giggled and commented on 'famous' scenes while countless people left the auditorium throughout the production (which only lasts for 1 hour 40.... seriously, you can't wait that long for another drink?) On the whole, if I'd paid £20 in a provincial theatre I would have been entertained and put up with the rest. £70 tickets in the west end? Both the production team and the theatre management should do better.

Review: THE EXORCIST at the Phoenix Theatre

by Nicola Wright | Monday, November 6 2017, 10:08

The Exorcist Regarded by many as one of the most iconic, and disturbing horror films ever made, The Exorcist was released in 1973. Banned by some cinemas the audience were desperate to see if this multi award winning film would live up to the word of mouth hype. Written originally as a book by William Peter Blatty and two years later as the film, this stage version which began at Birmingham Rep, has been adapted by John Pielmeier and remains as faithful to the book as the confines of a stage production will allow.
