An extraordinary, multi-sensory theatrical eventYann Martel’s Booker Prize-winning Life of Pi stalks into the West End in a thrilling new stage adaptation. After a three-week run at Sheffield Crucible described as “pure theatrical magic” (The Stage) in 2019, this incredible tale of adventure, friendship and endurance transfers to London’s Wyndham’s Theatre.
Set mainly in the hallucinatory current of the Pacific Ocean, Life of Pi is the tale of teenager Pi, the sole human survivor of a cargo ship disaster en-route from India to Canada. With his family drowned and little hope of rescue, Pi must battle for survival as he shares a drifting lifeboat with various animals, including the magnificent but terrifying tiger Richard Parker.
Featuring stunning puppets that conjure flying fish and fearsome predators, Life of Pi is adapted into a breathtaking theatrical experience by playwright Lolita Chakrabarti and director Max Webster.
Prepare to immerse yourself in an otherworldly adventure with Life of Pi tickets. From deserted islands to the depths of our own imaginations, this spectacular play runs at Wyndham’s Theatre from Autumn 2021.
