Halloween week just got that much spookier.
Widely considered the scariest film of all time, the theatre adaptation of The Exorcist is set to arrive at Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre on Halloween week, playing between October 29th and November 2nd, 2019. Tickets are priced at €21 and are on sale now.
The full cast has been announced for the UK and Ireland tour of The Exorcist. Playing Father Merin, the show stars Paul Nicholas, recognizable for playing the role of Vince Pinner in British sitcom Just Good Friends. Alongside Paul will be TV star Sophie Ward, best known for her roles in Holby City and Heartbeat playing Chris MacNeil, and household name Ben Caplan best known for his time as Sgt. Peter Noakes in Call the Midwife, who will play Father Damien. This talented trio will lead the cast for the UK and Ireland tour of the spine-tingling live production of The Exorcist, based on the best-selling novel by William Peter Blatty.
The cast is completed by Tristram Wymark, Henry Labouchere in Victoria; Stephen Billington, D.I. Knight in Armchair Detectives; Patrick Toomey, Christopher Sutherland in Holby City; Joseph Wilkins of Young Marx at The Bridge Theatre; Susannah Edgley who starred in The Exorcist in the West End; Jonathan Blakeley from The Mousetrap, and making her professional debut is Eliza Capel.
Inspired by true events, this devilishly thrilling tale has been adapted for the 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.
