The Story

Based on the Academy Award-winning film, this version of Life of Pi had its world premiere in Sheffield in 2019 and is now set to transfer to Wyndham’s Theatre in London.

The story follows the survivors of a shipwreck in the middle of the Pacific Ocean including a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan, a Royal Bengal Tiger, and a 16-year old boy named Pi. Eventually, the only two left on the boat are Pi and the tiger, named Richard Parker. The two must learn to coexist with each other and find themselves to safety, while enduring a long journey of emotional and physical hardships.
