This Halloween The Exorcist Is Making Its Terrifying West End Debut

The power of Christ compels you… to go and scare yourself silly at the Phoenix Theatre.

The Birmingham Rep’s critically acclaimed production of The Exorcist is coming to the West End’s Phoenix Theatre, just in time for a little Halloween fun… or terror, depending on how you like to look at things.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 40-odd years – which seems highly unlikely, given that you’re reading this now – you’ll definitely have heard of this cult horror classic. A little girl is possessed by a demon so her mother calls in a local priest to conduct an exorcism. Naturally.

[Robert Day]
Well, this production is being directed by the legendary Sean Mathias (the director of Waiting for Godot, starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, as well as so many other fantastic pieces of theatre) which makes us very, very excited for this one.

They’re even pronounced that nobody under 18 will be admitted to see this, so you know it’s going to be heavy on the horror. A perfect Halloween date-night… or your worst nightmare of an evening out? You decide.

The play is set to run at The Phoenix Theatre from 20th October 2017 to 10th March 2018 and general release tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 11) through the venue’s website.
