"★★★★★ 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 Open Captioning?
Open captioning is a text display of words and sounds heard during an event. A professional captioner prepares the captions ahead of time and runs the captions on an LED display live during the performance. The captioner has full control over the display of the captions, allowing for precise alignment with the text of the play. The display is positioned in such a way that it is open for anyone to see in a particular seating area. It is considered passive assistance, a service that is there to use or ignore. No one is labeled as needing the captioning with special equipment required at his/her seat.
