"★★★★★ Breathtaking. It will make you believe in the power of theater."
-THE TIMES OF LONDON
"One of the most visually stunning shows I’ve ever seen."
-TIME OUT LONDON
Sixteen-year-old Pi and his family set off to emigrate from India, but after their ship sinks in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Pi is left stranded on a lifeboat with just four other survivors—a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Royal Bengal tiger. Time is against them, nature is harsh, who will survive? Called “extraordinary and unmissable” by The Guardian for its inventive puppetry and winner of five 2022 Olivier Awards including Best New Play, this highly imaginative theatrical adaptation brings one of the most beloved works of fiction to the stage to tell its epic story of endurance and hope.
What is Audio Description?
Audio description helps to ensure that people who are blind or have low vision enjoy equal access to performances. Before the show, a trained describer details the visual elements of the production (costumes, set, props). Before the show, A.R.T. staff provides a “Touch Tour” where patrons can familiarize themselves first-hand with the textures, materials, props, and costumes used in the production. During the performance, a trained describer inserts descriptions of critical visual elements: actions, appearance of characters, body language, costumes, settings, lighting, etc. Descriptions are delivered through a wireless earphone allowing users to sit anywhere in the audience.
