The Exorcist UK Tour tickets

Bill Kenwright presents the nationwide tour of the spine-tingling live production of The Exorcist, based on the best-selling novel by William Peter Blatty. Inspired by true events, this devilishly thrilling tale has been adapted for stage by John Pielmeier and directed by Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot, No Man’s Land), featuring the voice of Ian McKellen as the Demon. The production comes direct from London’s West End.

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…
