The Hunger Games stage adaptation to open in London in 2024
A stage adaptation of The Hunger Games is to premiere in London in 2024.
Conor McPherson (Girl from the North Country) is penning the new stage show, which is based on both the original book and film. Matthew Dunster (The Pillowman) will direct.
The Hunger Games on stage will open in London in autumn 2024. A venue, dates and further information are to be confirmed.
Suzanne Collins, best-selling author of The Hunger Games series, said: “I’m very excited to be collaborating with the amazing team of Conor McPherson and Matthew Dunster as they bring their dynamic and innovative interpretation of The Hunger Games to the London stage.”
McPherson added: “To receive Suzanne Collins’ blessing to adapt The Hunger Games for the stage is both humbling and inspiring. She has created a classic story which continues to resonate now more than ever.
“In a world where the truth itself seems increasingly up for grabs, The Hunger Games beautifully expresses values of resilience, self-reliance and independent moral inquiry for younger people especially. This is turbo charged storytelling of the highest order and I’m hugely excited to bring it to a new generation of theatre goers and to Suzanne Collins’ longstanding and devoted fans.”
The production will have set design by Miriam Buether, costume design by Moi Tran, choreography by Charlotte Broom, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Ian Dickinson for Autograph, video design by Tal Rosner, fight direction by Kev McCurdy, performer flying by John Maddox for Suspended illusion, casting direction by Amy Ball, and production manager Gary Beestone.
