A Little Life to be released in cinemas – dates, tickets and cast

Ivo van Hove’s English language adaptation of Hanya Yanagihara’s critically acclaimed prize-winning novel A Little Life is to be screened in cinemas.

The production premiered in the West End this summer, where it is currently running at the Harold Pinter until 18 June. Due to popular demand, it will then transfer to the Savoy Theatre from 4 July to 5 August. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

For those not able to catch the show in person, a filmed performance will be released in cinemas across the UK (and selected European countries)on 28 September 2023.

Tickets will go on sale from 6 July via www.ALittleLifeCinema.com.

Making up the cast are James Norton, Luke Thompson, Omari Douglas, Zach Wyatt, Elliot Cowan, Zubin Varla, Nathalie Armin and Emilio Doorgasingh.

A Little Life follows four college friends in New York City: aspiring actor Willem, successful architect Malcolm, struggling artist JB, and prodigious lawyer Jude.

As ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull the group apart, they always find themselves bound by their love for Jude and the mysteries of his past.

But when those secrets come to light, they finally learn that to know Jude St Francis is to understand the limitless potential of love in the face of life

Wessex Grove, Gavin Kalin Productions and Playful Productions present the production which has set & lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys, music & sound design by Eric Sleichim and casting director Julia Horan CDG.

Wessex Grove’s Benjamin Lowy and Emily Vaughan-Barratt said: “Producing Hanya’s ground-breaking novel A Little Life on stage has been an extraordinary privilege, and it’s been humbling to see how many people have embraced Ivo’s production. We’re grateful to be able to partner with Trafalgar Releasing to take this show to audiences across the UK and Europe, who otherwise have not had the opportunity to share in this one off piece of theatre making and the cast’s incredible performances.”

Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing, added: “Following the sold-out run of A Little Life in the West End, it’s great to partner with Wessex Grove, Gavin Kalin Productions and Playful Productions to bring the hottest London theatre event of 2023 to the big screen, sharing this acclaimed production with both theatre lovers and fans of the book across the UK and Europe.”
