We've been coming to the Theatre Royal Windsor for over 50 years and this is definitely the best play we have ever seen there. Everything in the production was excellent - the lighting, sound and special effects were exceptionally well done. All the actors were superb and must have been exhausted after giving so much to the performance. A very enjoyable evening, thank you.

At times riveting and on occasion shocking ,this production is well worth seeing.
Paul Nicholas and Sophie Ward are excellent as Priest Father Merton and Chris McNeal (Regans mother) but Regan (Susannah Edgely)is the outstanding performance easily convincing the audience that she is possessed.
There is gore , blood and mice, blinding light and sinister darkness along with the unexpected heart stopping bang to keep the audiences attention!
Literally a head turning production!

We came to see the Exorcist... but I'll try and be more generic about the venue rather than the performance. But FYI see the Exorcist... it was fantastic!

At the bottom of the hill next to the castle there's a couple of nearby car parks that can get you near to the theatre, otherwise park in Windsor Yard and enjoy the shopping enroute.

Small but perfectly formed is the best description. Not suffering from the usual cramped seating of theatres this old we were actually quite comfortable for the duration of the performance. I think you'd struggle to find a bad seat to be honest, decent angling to the seats, and with only 15 or so seats across it makes for an intimate venue without being cramped.

Decent size bar for drinks pre-performance (and interval) and the usual concession offerings.

I didn't see how disabled patrons got to the stalls, but a lady in a wheelchair was present for our performance, she did however need to be transferred to a seat at the end of an isle (this could have been her preference, I'm not sure).

Sound wise the performers were clearly audible, and the audio and lighting effects were top notch.

It’s had a chequers history, the existing Grade 2 listed Edwardian building opening in 1910 replacing an earlier building which had burnt down two years earlier. It was turned into a cinema briefly between 1929 and 1930 and came close to bankruptcy in the 1930s before its revival after World War II and substantial refurbishment in 1965. It has a wide repertoire ranging from classic productions, pantomimes and productions of new works which sometimes transfer to the West End. All the more remarkable then that it’s currently the only theatre in the U.K. able to survive wholly without subsidy.
