Based on the best-selling novel by Louis de Bernières that inspired the hit film, Captain Corelli's Mandolin makes its world première. Set on the Greek island of Cephalonia, this is an unforgettable love story which evolves against the turbulent backdrop of World War II.
Dr Iannis loves the island of Cephalonia and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter Pelagia. Carlo, an Italian soldier, learned what it means to love whilst fi ghting in Albania. Pelagia loves her father and the fi sherman Mandras. The young Italian Captain Corelli loves only his music. And then in 1941, the idyllic Greek island awakes to fi nd itself in the jaws of war, under Italian and German occupation.
As history unfolds, everything they thought they knew and understood changes.
Marking the 25th Anniversary of the novel's original publication, this epic journey is brought vividly to life for the stage by Olivier and Tony-Award nominated director Melly Still (The Lovely Bones, My Brilliant Friend) and playwright Rona Munro (Rebus: Long Shadows, The James Plays). In an extraordinary tale of human fragility at a time of war, we discover how enemies forced together must learn to co-exist, and that all kinds of love can blossom in unimaginable circumstances.
