“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…

Adapted for the stage by John Pielmeier and directed by Sean Mathias, The Exorcist is widely considered to be one of the scariest films of all time, sparking controversy when it was first released in cinemas but it went on to win two Oscars.
