Discover what the critics made of the stage adaptation of Louis de Bernières’ novel, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
It seems appropriate that Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, the 1990s beach novel that launched a hundred thousand package holidays to Kefalonia should itself be staged in a lightly air-conditioned theatre that’s currently hotter than Greece.
The stage adaptation of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Louis De Bernières’ award-winning book about love in the war-torn Island of Cephalonia, has come to London’s West End after a successful regional tour.
This touring production of Captain’s Corelli’s Mandolin allows aching heartbreak to overcome any nods to cloying sentimentality.

Rebus: Long Shadows is a bit of a mixed bag, lacking in intensity and with a plot which is overly complicated, but the production is suitably atmospheric and engaging to watch unfold.
The past catches up with the whisky-swilling ex-DI in Rebus: Long Shadows, a brooding, noirish, thriller especially written by Rankin for the stage and skilfully adapted by Rona Munro.
After a sell-out run in June this year in which Laura Linney made her London theatre debut, she will return to the Bridge Theatre to reprise the title role in Richard Eyre’s production of My Name is Lucy Barton.
Despite boasting the talents of two of Scotland’s greatest writers and a more than adequate cast, Rebus: Long Shadows is nowhere near as compelling as the stage debut of Edinburgh’s most celebrated fictional policeman should be.
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.
