A faithful stage adaptation for Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Captain Corelli's Mandolin is the tearjerker Nicholas Cage movie based on the Second World War novel by Louis de Bernières about the Nazi and Italian occupation of the Greek islands. As history has recorded, the Germans were ordered to subjugate the Italians as part of Hitler's ongoing tussle to control Mussolini, resulting in much loss of life.

A debut at a venerated West End theatre
Captain Corelli's Mandolin has become an iconic book in the slew of novels that came out towards the end of the 20th century dealing with the intricacies of human nature and personal relationships during the awful years of World War II. Sebastian Faulks' books were highly visible among them, along with Michael Ondaantje's sob-fest of a novel, which was also turned into a play, The English Patient Live. This should give you a fair idea of what to expect from the live theatre adaption of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Its West End home has been The Harold Pinter Theatre, a venue with an intimidating reputation for high-quality theatre, often veering into the Avant Garde, since the days when it was simply known as the Comedy Theatre prior to 2011. Coincidentally, it has also played host to the stage production of Sebastian Faulks's "Birdsong". At other times, audiences have enjoyed one unexpected pleasure after another, like watching Thandie Newton on stage in Death and the Maiden. It's the perfect place to make use of your Captain Corelli's Mandolin tickets, and enjoy the show with a box of tissues.
A classic '90s movie comes alive on the London stage
Captain Corelli's Mandolin has seen plenty of stage adaptations, from which this Melly Still production takes a slight detour, stripping the stage of any lush props, and instead using almost rudimentary scenery to highlight the script instead. This is a necessary device, as the two main protagonists in the play, Captain Corelli and his young Greek paramour, Pelagia, only appear together towards the end, which means that a lot of absorbing dialogue and storytelling has to carry the audience until the story can come into full bloom. This version also contains a lot of physical acting, as it strives to communicate the emotionality of the story in as many ways as possible. Captain Corelli's Mandolin has firmly taken its place among the most beloved stage productions of classic and modern classic novels. It's a proud tradition indeed, with the likes of To Kill a Mockingbird leading the way.
