NT Encore: GOOD
23rd Apr 2023
Puppetry, magic and storytelling combine in a unique, Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation of the best-selling novel.
After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, a 16-year-old boy named 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?
Filmed live in London’s West End and featuring state-of-the-art visuals, the epic journey of endurance and hope is bought to life in a breath-taking new way for cinemas screens.
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
This is a live screening, streamed direct from the National Theatre stage to our big screen.
Novel by: Yann Martel
Adapted by: Lolita Chakrabarti
