Life of Pi Tickets

An extraordinary, multi-sensory theatrical event

Yann Martel’s Booker Prize-winning Life of Pi stalks into the West End in a thrilling new stage adaptation. This incredible tale of adventure, friendship and endurance is now playing at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre.

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, the Life of Pi play is a breath-taking live experience, adapted from the book by playwright Lolita Chakrabarti and director Max Webster. The production won a total of five Olivier Awards in 2022, including Best Supporting Actor (for the seven actors playing the tiger) and Best New Play.

The Life of Pi West End cast includes Nuwan Hugh Perera as Pi, and Daisy Franks; Owain Gwynn; Romina Hytton; Elan James; Rebecca Killick; Tom Larkin; and Tom Stacey as Richard Parker.

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 is an unforgettable theatrical event.

This production intertwined so many wonderous forms of theatre to really immerse the audience into Pi's story world. A tale of family values, love, hope and despair. Pi is a intellectual he wants to embrace science and theology, with no limits. He tells his story of tragedy and survival with wit and humour. The animal puppetry used to bring the family zoo to life were incredible. The children with us were in awe at them. I personally felt this theatrical production told the original story in the book more faithfully than the film. Our group would recommend it to all.

Very visually stunning and lavish production. Staging is phenomenal and puppetry breath- taking. Quite similar to Lion, Witch and Wardrobe -think the latter came from the former but you forget the people are there at points. The parts where Pi actually seems to enter the ‘water’ - stage are incredible!

Excellent show, great acting from the actor playing Pi and the puppeteers are amazing. The special effects really bring it to life and I really loved it even though I saw it a few months ago I saw things I’d missed before or forgotten.
