Show of the Month: Life of Pi


Winner of Best New Play, Best Actor, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Set Design, and Best Lighting Design at the 2022 Olivier Awards.

After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi is stranded on a lifeboat with four other survivors – a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Royal Bengal tiger. 

Time is against them; nature is harsh; who will survive? Gripping, thrilling and a wonder to watch, Life of Pi brings the fierce, moonlit Pacific Ocean to London’s West End.

The universally acclaimed, smash hit adaptation of Life of Pi is now showing at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End. See the spellbinding story come to life in a show that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before.

An extraordinary and much-loved work of fiction, Yann Martel’s Life of Pi won the Man Booker Prize, selling over fifteen million copies worldwide, and is now the winner of 5 Olivier Awards, including “Best New Play”

This stage adaptation, directed by Max Webster, features breathtaking puppetry and state-of-the-art visuals to create an epic journey of endurance and hope.

Long after the curtain falls, “Life of Pi will make you believe in the power of theatre” (The Times).
