“It doesn’t arrive in London until June but there is real momentum behind this stage version of Yann Martel’s book about a boy, a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra and 450-pound Bengal tiger stranded in a lifeboat on the Pacific Ocean. Adapted by Lolita Chakrabati, and seen at Sheffield Theatres earlier this year, the show won a slew of five star reviews. Wyndhams will be reconfigured to accommodate Max Webster’s production in which the stage extends over the stalls, and the puppet animals are brought to life by Finn Caldwell who has worked on Warhorse, Groundhog Day and the Elephantom.”
After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, there are five survivors stranded on a lifeboat - a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, a Royal Bengal tiger, and a sixteen year-old boy named Pi.
Based on one of the most extraordinary and best-loved works of fiction - winner of the Man Booker Prize, selling over fifteen million copies worldwide - and featuring breath-taking puppetry and state-of-the-art visuals, LIFE OF PI is a universally acclaimed, smash hit adaptation of an epic journey of endurance and hope.
