English language stage premiere of ‘A LITTLE LIFE’ extends at the Savoy Theatre due to unprecedented demand

Due to record-breaking demand at Richmond Theatre and the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End, Ivo van Hove’s English language stage première of Hanya Yanagihara’s critically acclaimed prize-winning novel, A LITTLE LIFE, will now play a further five weeks only at the Savoy Theatre from 4 July to 5 August 2023.

Van Hove directs James Norton (Jude), Luke Thompson (Willem), Omari Douglas (JB), Zach Wyatt (Malcolm), Elliot Cowan (Brother Luke/Doctor Traylor/Caleb), Zubin Varla (Harold), Nathalie Armin (Ana), and Emilio Doorgasingh (Andy).

The production previews at Richmond Theatre from 14 to 18 March, ahead of opening in the West End at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 5 April, with previews from 25 March, and runs until 18 June.

Wessex Grove’s Benjamin Lowy and Emily Vaughan-Barratt said today:

“We could not be more delighted to have the opportunity to extend A Little Life in the West End this summer. Hanya’s book has had a profound impact on so many people’s lives, and it’s a privilege to witness the way in which the production is being embraced by audiences. We’ve just finished rehearsals, and it’s been extraordinary to watch Ivo and this incredible group of actors discover this story anew on stage. It’s a beautiful piece of theatre, and we’re delighted our company want to continue performing the play together at the iconic theatre that is the Savoy – a real honour for a straight play to perform on that stage.”
