Following a critically acclaimed UK tour, the brand-new stage adaptation of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited, nine-week season from 4 July. 

Cephalonia 1941. Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is posted to the idyllic Greek island as part of the occupying forces. The Captain is soon thrown together with Dr Iannis’ strong – willed and beautiful daughter Pelagia, who discovers all of the complexities of love, and how it can blossom in the most unexpected and profound way.

A cast of fifteen actors and singers bring Louis de Bernières’ epic novel dramatically to life. Experience all of the passion and poetry that made this love story a multimillion best-selling novel and a smash-hit Hollywood movie. 

From the vivid descriptions of the village and its inhabitants, to the brutal life and epic sweep of the soldiers caught up in the constantly changing politics of war, this stunning new production is directed by Olivier and Tony-Award nominee Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and Evening Standard Award winning writer and adaptor Rona Munro (The James Plays) and includes specially commissioned music by Harry Blake.

 

★★★★ ‘Blissful wartime romance. Wonderfully true to the much-loved book. BRAVO’ The Times

★★★★ ‘A fleet, muscular retelling. Liable to bring a lump to the throat’ Daily Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Wartime romance plucks at the heartstrings’ Evening Standard

I had watched the film, and loved it,, how ever the play at the beginning spend to long on the war,, and dragged on abit,, the second half was better as was more of the main two characters,, as the film was finding love. While. At war.

I enjoyed this show more than I was expecting to. The story stuck closely to the book so was quite stark at times when dealing with the effects of war. The acting was good and there was humour as well. The woman acting the goat was amazing. Don't ask ! and the mixed gender and ethnicity worked well. The large "rock" at the back of the stage lent itself to all sorts of dramatic sound and visual effects.

First half could be shorter with a couple scenes that could be cut. The second half is definitely more engaging. Overall a good night out. Worth mentioning that the staff at the theatre were lovely.

I enjoyed the play and admired the director's vision in putting on a well know book and film. The actors were excellent - I particularly admired the main characters and the goat and the pine martin. A little too much of the war for my liking.
