It has enjoyed success as a novel by Yann Martel and a film by Ang Lee, but the latest way to see Life of Pi is on a West End stage as a new production heads to the Wyndham’s Theatre.
In 2020 audiences will be able to experience the memorable and awe-inspiring tale of a young boy and a tiger, which has captured the imaginations of audiences and resonated with critics as well, making it one of the most successful stories of the 21st century.
The novel was first published in 2001 and since then it has been the recipient of numerous awards, becoming an enormously successful book around the world. So the film and stage adaptations were highly anticipated, and this West End transfer can’t come soon enough!
The story focuses on Pi, an Indian boy who joins his family on a freighter that is transporting animals to North America. But the ship gets into trouble and soon he is the only human left alive, with his only company a Bengal tiger. The images of Pi and the tiger sharing a boat have become iconic in popular culture and will provide a profound visual experience for audiences as Richard the Tiger is brought to life by acclaimed puppetry.
The show is the work of Lolita Chakrabarti, an actor and writer who has had great success with a range of shows. As well as Life of Pi, for which she won numerous awards following its original run in Sheffield, she has also penned Red Velvet, which has appeared around the world, including in the West End at the Garrick Theatre.
Life of Pi runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End from Thursday 9th July 2020 (previews from Sunday 28th June 2020).
