Brixham Theatre, in collaboration with National Theatre Live, is launching an exciting project to bring the very best of British Theatre to Brixham, starting with the Olivier-award winning Life of Pi on Wednesday 21st June.
National Theatre Live record West End plays in front of live audiences, optimising everything from camera work to lighting to give a ‘best seat in the house’ experience to regional theatre-goers on their own doorstep.
New titles are added monthly for a 12-week period and Wednesday is the very last chance to see this extraordinary story of human ingenuity, survival and identity.
‘After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, there are five survivors stranded on a lifeboat – a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, a Royal Bengal tiger, and a sixteen year-old boy named Pi. Time is against them, nature is harsh, who will survive?
Featuring breath-taking puppetry and state-of-the-art visuals, Life of Pi is an epic journey of endurance and hope brought to life in a breath-taking new way for the cinema screen.’
Long after the curtain falls, “Life of Pi will make you believe in the power of theatre” (The Times)
