“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-five 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). 

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

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 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.

Bus to replace train didn't turn up and extra trains cancelled so no way to get to the play in London from Worthing. Been trying to get refund from rail company for our tickets but refuse to pay up. SO DISAPPOINTED really like Phoenix theatre and first time never been able to get to London. If possible could you let me know how to contact Phoenix, thanks Linda B

We saw the last show of The Exorcist. Brilliantly acted with mind blowing effects. An edge of your seat experience and one of the best theatre experiences I've been to.

I recently took my mother to watch The Exorcist for her Mother's Day treat. I honestly didn't know what to expect because it seemed that critics of the show hated it whilst the audience loved it. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the whole show. It is definitely for over 18's purely because of some of the scenes and the language but that didn't deter me from the show. I thought it was all put together nicely. The scenery looked amazing and I was surprised with how well it worked. Having the attic, the living room, the hallway, Regan's bedroom and bringing on other pieces of set I thought would have been a too difficult and would look silly but I thought it worked well. The acting I thought was good. Personally, there were a few things that I would change but I think that the cast worked well together and they each had their own individual character that they made their own. I have to tip my hat to Regan who I thought had an extremely challenging role, reverting from Regan to the Demon and I thought she done this fantastically. There were some special effects I thought were a bit of a miss (vomit) whilst others I thought was done really well (head spinning). Of course, with a story such as The Exorcist, I can totally appreciate that there is only so much you can do in the theatre but I thought it was done good enough that the audience enjoyed it. I wouldn't say that I was particularly scared, although, I am a massive horror fan so it takes a lot for me to get scared. There were a few jumps from the loud sound effects but I would say the show itself, for me, wasn't scary but nonetheless it was extremely enjoyable. I was disappointed that there was no merchandise that I could see because I would have loved a shirt or jumper of some short. I have to add that during this show I was very ill. I am on medication that unfortunately made me sick, I have to thank The Phoenix theatre for being so kind and helpful for me whilst I was in this predicament. I had the leave the show half-way through the first act because I was going to be sick and they were so caring, helpful and made sure that I was okay during the rest of the show. Thank you! Overall, I am glad that I watched this show and I would recommend it to others looking to watch something different in the theatre.
