“One of the casualties of the pandemic, which has long delayed its transfer from Sheffield to the West End, Max Webster’s acclaimed 2019 production should get audiences roaring. Lolita Chakrabarti’s adaptation of the novel about an Indian boy who is cast adrift on the Pacific for 227 days, sharing his lifeboat with a Bengal tiger, has been acclaimed as being better than the film and the original book and comes with clever projections and puppetry. Sheffield Theatre is very much on a roll at the moment and the suggestion that this family friendly show could be the next War Horse is unlikely to be an exaggeration.”
“This breathtaking adaption of the beloved novel comes to the West End from Sheffield, where it wowed audiences with gorgeous design and intimate storytelling.”

Tickets from £30

Overview

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.
