About A Little Life - Harold Pinter Theatre

Ivo van Hove directs an all-star cast in Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life in the West End. A Little Life tickets are available on London Theatre now.

This is for A Little Life at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Get A Little Life tickets at the Savoy Theatre here.

Acclaimed writer Hanya Yanagihara’s second novel A Little Life quickly became a worldwide phenomenon. The Booker Prize-nominated novel about four college friends in New York City earned unanimous praise — it was later shortlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction. Now, Yanigahara collaborates with Koen Tachelet and Ivo van Hove on bringing her novel to the stage.

An eight-strong cast will deliver a marathon performance in this gripping adaptation. The core group of friends is played by BAFTA-nominated Happy Valley actor James Norton plays Jude, joined by Bridgerton’s Luke Thompson as Willem, It’s a Sin’s Omari Douglas as JB, and The Witcher’s Zach Wyatt as Malcolm. Between this quartet, they’ve worked on groundbreaking television series. Now, they come together for a bold, visionary production for the ages.

What is A Little Life about?

Four boys lived together in college and moved to New York City after graduation in search of a brighter future. They’ve all got different dreams: an aspiring actor named Willem, a budding painter named JB, an agitated architect named Malcolm, and a successful lawyer named Jude. Their lives revolve around Jude, a mysterious character who only opens up to Willem, creating tension between the friends.

As the decades fly by, Willem, JB, and Malcolm always find themselves drawn to Jude and his past. Even though Jude’s highly successful, he’s haunted by a past that comes to define him forever. When secrets come to light, the foursome finally learn what it means to love.

Dramatic, Profound, Intense, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You like LGBTQ+ thematics and intense, dramatic plays. Beautifully acted. Was turning in my seat the whole time.

Don’t see it if You’re easily impressed and don’t care for the plays that exploit pain. Topics like suicide and self-harm trigger you.

Outstanding, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You like a brilliant performance brilliantly acted. I was left emotionally drained it was a difficult watch.

Don’t see it if You are triggered by mental health and self harm and don’t want to cry in the theatre

Intense, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you're a fan of James Norton. He is amazing in this. He rarely leaves the stage for this 3+ hour show.

Don’t see it if if the sight of blood makes you nauseous. There's a lot of cutting and constant cleaning of blood on stage.

Traumatic, Harrowing, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if James Norton has secured his Olivier for this season in what’s possibly the best show I’ve ever seen.

Don’t see it if It’s very long, and the amount of trigger warnings won’t fit here, so be prepared going in, it’s a lot.
