Playwright John Pielmeier's Latest Work to Premiere at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles

The world premiere adaptation of The Exorcist, the famous 1971 novel documenting the terror and redemption of a ten-year-old girl remains as frightening and relevant as when first experienced. Under the direction of Tony Award winner John Doyle and adapted by acclaimed playwright John Pielmeier (Agnes of God), The Exorcist transforms the unsettling battles of good versus evil, faith versus fact and ego versus ethos. John is a MFA alumnus of the Penn State School of Theatre. The play features Brooke Shields and Richard Chamberlain, and is scheduled to run from July 11-August 12 at the Gil Cates Theatre, Geffen Playhouse, in Los Angeles. Tickets can be purchased at
