"★★★★★ 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 are Relaxed Performances?
Relaxed Performances, sometimes called Sensory Friendly Performances, are open to all audience members who could benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere at the theater. These performances feature a relaxed and inclusive attitude towards making sounds, moving, and using assistive devices; adjustments to the severity of sound and lighting cues; and quiet areas outside of the theater, for anyone who needs a break. A.R.T. works in consultation with an occupational therapist and other professionals to develop supports for each relaxed performance, which may include a social narrative and pre-show introduction to the characters. Relaxed performances offer accommodations to the theater-going experience and do not fundamentally alter the content of the productions.
