The Devils


Adapted and directed by Ben Naylor and Anna Healey

Performed by MA Acting Classical students


Originally commissioned for the RSC's first season in 1961, John Whiting's dramatisation of Aldous Huxley's historical novel The Devils of Loudun was itself later adapted by Ken Russell into one of the most shocking and controversial films of the 1970s.

This staging, by the team behind 2015's The Suicide and last year's Mary Stuart at Central, rediscovers for the 21st century the play's steely focus on perennial and troubling questions, of the reality of evil and of our collusion with it.

By special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

NB. This production contains scenes of an adult nature
