The popular West End productions LIFE OF PI and BEST OF ENEMIES are to be shown in cinemas via NT Live in 2023.
After winning 5 Olivier Awards, the smash-hit play LIFE OF PI came to an end in London on the 15th of January 2021 after an extremely successful run at The Wyndham’s Theatre. It was then announced that the play would be going on tour around the UK and Ireland from the Summer of 2023.
The play follows the story of a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi who after a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean is the only survivor with a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Royal Bengal tiger. Time is against them, nature is harsh, and who will survive?
Based on one of the most extraordinary and best-loved works of fiction and winner of the Man Booker Prize, selling over fifteen million copies worldwide and featuring state-of-the-art visuals and breathtaking puppetry with state-of-the-art visuals. Life of Pi will be broadcasting in cinemas from 30th March 2023..
The critically acclaimed production of BEST OF ENEMIES is currently playing at The Noel Coward Theatre after its sell-out run at The Old Vic.
The play recounts the historical debate of 1968 that changed American politics forever. Two candidates, conservative William F Buckley and Liberal opponent Gore Vidal fight for the presidency of the United States during a time of political divide. This event not only changed American politics but it also transformed television news for good.
Zachary Quinto makes his West End debut as Gore Vidal and he is joined by David Harewood who reprises his role as William F Buckley. The New York Times stated that BEST OF ENEMIES is ‘the most riveting play in London’. The production will play in The West End until the 18th of February 2023 before hitting cinemas from the 18th May 2023.
