All set to put some sizzle on the stage, the award-winning stage adaptation by Lolita Chakrabarti — Life of Pi — will return to West End after a spectacular run in 2019. The play, also based on the feature film of the same name, is adapted from an award-winning novel from 2001. Its larger-than-life production will feature life-sized puppets that will take you on an extraordinary journey, making sure you’re in awe of its innovative set design. The highly anticipated production will make its return to London’s Wyndham Theatre in June and will run for a limited time till October.

About the Show

The cast and crew for Life of Pi’s West End run is yet to be announced. The creative team will include director Max Webster with puppet and movement director Finn Caldwell. The show will also have separate puppet designers — Caldwell and Nick Barnes apart from composer Andrew T Mackay, costume designer Tim Hatley, sound designer Carolyn Downing, video production designer Andrzej Goulding. The original casting for the show is done by Polly Jerrold.

The Story

After the sinking of the cargo ship that was ferrying his family and some animals to Canada, sixteen-year-old Pi finds himself stranded on a lifeboat with five survivors. Sailing through the harsh and unforgiving sea, Pi and an orang-utan, a badly-wounded zebra, a hyena, and a tiger make their way on an epic adventure. It is not long before he’s left with — Richard Parker — the tiger and his hopes of surviving dwindle on every passing day. With a journey that pushes the two to their limits, will Pi be able to endure the merciless nature and make his way to the seashore once again?
