Could stage production of The Exorcist land in London's West End?
The Birmingham Repertory Theatre in association with Bill Kenwright are presenting a new stage production of The Exorcist, adapted by John Pielmeier from the novel by William Peter Blatty. The production runs in Birmingham over Halloween from 21 October to 5 November 2016, and could potentially land in London's West End in the near future.
Adam Garcia will play Father Damien Karras opposite Jenny Seagrove and Peter Bowles. The new production is directed by Sean Mathias, who has recently opened No Man’s Land in the West End at the Wyndham's Theatre. It features designs by Anna Fleischsle, lightning by Tim Mitchell and illusions by Ben Hart.
"When the medical profession fails to provide answers to young Regan’s strange symptoms her desperate mother Chris turns to a local priest for help. But before Father Damian 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…" The story is inspired by true events and was turned into an Oscar-winning film in 1973. The Birmingham Repertory Theatre have stated that the show is not suitable for those under the age of 18.
