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

Jaw-dropping visuals, magic and world-class puppetry, combine in a unique and “breath-taking” (The Times) 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, who will survive?

Based on the global phenomenon and winner of the Man Booker Prize, selling over fifteen million copies worldwide, Life of Pi is the acclaimed and hugely popular adaptation of an epic journey
of endurance and hope.

Winner of five Olivier Awards, including Best Play, see the West End spectacle as it comes to Birmingham Hippodrome on its first ever UK tour.
