HAROLD PINTER THEATRE
(formerly the Comedy Theatre)
CAPTAIN CORELLI'S MANDOLIN (play)
Ends 31st August 2019.
Young Italian officer Captain Corelli is posted to Cephalonia in 1941. He falls
in love with Pelagia, a doctor's daughter.
15 actors bring the hit novel to the stage.
Not available. Professional reviewers agree that this is a businesslike
adaptation of a novel for the stage. There's nothing dramatic about the first
half of either, and most of it is setting scenes for the second half of the
evening. There's praise for the way in which a large cast is marshalled by
director Melly Still, and also for the scene-setting projections. When the
action does arrive, a few reviewers comment that it is moving and a reminder
that the date isn't so far away as we would remember.
Adequate in all respects at the thee star maximum mark seems to be the opinion.
