Life of Pi

Winner of every major play award including five Oliviers! The West End "theatrical phenomenon" (Telegraph) embarks on its biggest journey yet.

Jaw-dropping visuals, magic, and world-class puppetry combine in a unique and breathtaking theatrical event that is a "wonder to behold" (Daily Mail). 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, and who will survive?

Winner of five Olivier Awards, including Best Play, see the West End spectacle on its first-ever UK tour. "It will make you believe in the power of theatre."
