Following a critically and commercially successful world premiere at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, Life of Pi transfers to Wyndham’s Theatre in London. Life of Pi tickets are available on London Theatre now.
Life of Pi is a play based on Yann Martel’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name. Life of Pi centres on the title character, the sole human survivor of a shipwreck, along with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Together, the boy, the beast, and a menagerie must learn to coexist on a lifeboat as they battle for survival.
Life of Pi is an epic voyage across the ocean, adapted beautifully for the stage by Lolita Chakrabarti. Chakrabarti’s works include Red Velvet at the Garrick Theatre and Hymn at the Almeida Theatre. In 2021, Chakrabarti was awarded an Order of the British Empire for services to drama.
The Life of Pi novel was adapted into a film in 2012 which, directed by Ang Lee, was a huge success. Grossing over $600 million at the box office, the film, which starred Suraj Sharma, was nominated for nine Academy Awards, taking home four including best director and best original score.
Chakrabarti's stage adaptation premiered at Sheffield Theatres in June 2019 to positive reviews from theatre critics. The Life of Pi play features inventive direction by Max Webster, with life-size puppets designed by Nick Barnes and Finn Caldwell.
The original cast of Life of Pi in London also first performed the play in Sheffield, with Hiran Abeysekera in the role of Pi. Given the success of the play in Sheffield, Life of Pi was always going to transfer to the West End.
