Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Captain Corelli's MandolinT1147031971
Set on a Greek Island of Cephalonia from the Second World War to the present day, Captain Corelli's Mandolin tells the story of Dr Iannis, his daughter, Pelagia, the heroic Italian soldier, Carlo Guercio, the mandolin-playing Captain Antonio Corelli and the love they all share. It's a passionate story that sweeps you up with joy one minute then makes the fright and rage of war boil in the stomach the next. It is full of laughter and tears, the joy of love and, ultimately, the triumph of life over death.
Book by Louis de Bernieres

Sylvia (16Apr19):

Just returned after the first half of the show- so disappointed. Very disjointed and difficult to follow- the goat was so annoying (although well played). The poorest show we have seen at the Curve I'm sorry to say.

Andy (16Apr19):

So disappointing, performed on an empty stage, well not quite empty, there's a plastic milk crate, some step ladders and a couple of wooden beams. Obviously all you could need to recreate a Greek island. Performers were great but I just found the whole thing very disjointed. Have to say the whole theatre gave a standing ovation at the end, so maybe it was just me.
