About Life of Pi

Lolita Chakrabarti has masterfully adapted Yann Martel's renowned and award-winning novel, Life of Pi - a smash hit adaptation, into an engaging play filled with captivating performances and beautiful set pieces. In the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, a doomed cargo ship sinks casts sixteen year old boy into an uncertain future. Suddenly alone on board, his lifeboat is four other passengers; a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and lastly – most dangerously -a ferocious Royal Bengal tiger. In June 2019, the play made its debut at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre and was so successful that it is now transferring to London's iconic Wyndham's Theatre in November 2021. The extraordinary play was celebrated with five Laurence Olivier Awards, including the prestigious Best New Play accolade and further awards from UK Theatre: another Best New Play award, as well as a win for WhatsOnStage's new play category. 

Producer Simon Friend commissioned the play, and following two years of intensive workshops, it made its world premiere at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre from June 28th to July 20th, 2019. Max Webster directed this monumental performance. After the Sheffield run saw extraordinary success, the play moved to London's West End at the Wyndham's Theatre. Produced by Simon Friend, previews began on November 15th, 2021 and it officially opened its doors on December 2nd. Initially slated to open in June 2020, the play's debut was delayed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, it has proven so popular that two extensions of its run were granted--totaling an astounding three years! It will finally close on 15 January 2023. The captivating performance is set to make its North American debut at the A.R.T in Cambridge, Massachusetts from December 4th 2022 through January 29th 2023 before it graces Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on March 30th with previews beginning as early as March 9th! The performance includes strobe lighting and the use of haze. Experience the awe-inspiring, Olivier Award-winning 'Life of Pi', honored for Best New Play, Best Actor, Supporting Role Performance, Set Design and Lighting Design in 2022 and nominated for Academy Awards!
