Looking for a memorable start to the summer holidays? Join a fantastic cast and crew on a perilous journey through the vast Pacific Ocean in this brand new adaptation of Life of Pi at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, playing from 28th June to 20th July.
After a shattering shipwreck, sixteen-year-old Piscine Molitor Patel – “Pi” – is separated from his family and wakes up stranded at sea on a lifeboat, with four extraordinary companions: a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan and a hungry Bengal tiger called Richard Parker. This extraordinary story of one boy’s struggle to survive first appeared in Yann Martel’s award-winning novel in 2001, winning the Man Booker Prize and selling over fifteen million copies. In 2012, it was adapted into a critically acclaimed film, boasting several BAFTA nominations and winning a Golden Globe Award.
Now, Lolita Chakrabarti’s dazzling new adaptation uses puppetry, an original score and a fantastic ensemble of actors to tell this compelling story of endurance and hope like never before; and, with tickets starting from just £15 and family ticket options, it is an experience you can’t afford to miss!
