The most terrifying show this year

Theatre production of The Exorcist premieres at Birmingham Rep.

A new production of The Exorcist, directed by Sean Mathias, will receive its UK premiere at Birmingham Repertory Theatre from Friday 21 October – Saturday 5 November 2016. The cast features Jenny Seagrove in the role of Chris, Peter Bowles as Father Merrin and Adam Garcia as Damien.

When the medical profession fails to provide answers to 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 more than just one girl’s soul.

Inspired by true events, the two-time Oscar-winning film version of this story has terrified generations the world over since its release in 1973. Now this brand-new stage production of The Exorcist is unleashed for the very first time in a uniquely theatrical experience.

Programmed alongside The Exorcist, for a special Halloween season, is Séance by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg (18th–29th October) – a 15-minute immersive performance that takes place in absolute darkness inside a shipping container outside The REP in Centenary Square.

Tickets: From £15 with preview performances (21st-22nd October) from £10 Box Office: 0121 236 4455 Book Online:
