The first major stage production of Louis de Bernières’ best-selling novel Captain Corelli’s Mandolin will transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End from 4 July to 31 August 2019 following a hugely successful UK tour. There will be a gala opening night on 10 July.

The first major stage production of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, based on the best-selling novel by Louis de Bernières will tour the UK in 2019, 25 years after the book was first published.
