Irish cinema-goers can enjoy the Olivier-Award winning Life of Pi, captured live on stage in the West End this month.  

Puppetry, magic and storytelling combine in a unique stage adaptation of Yann Martel’s best-selling novel, Life of Pi.

The story centres on a 16-year-old boy named Pi who, after a ship sinking, is stranded on a lifeboat with four other survivors – a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan and a Royal Bengal tiger –in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean. Time is against them, nature is harsh. Who will survive?

Adapted by Lolita Chakrabarti and directed by Max Webster, this National Theatre Live's cinema broadcast on Thursday March 30, uses state-of-the-art visuals to capture this epic journey of endurance and hope.
