Before A Little Life opened in the West End, the show played for one week at the Richmond Theatre. Early performances received high praise, commenting on the show’s spellbinding qualities. Now, the play runs for three months at the Harold Pinter Theatre, before moving to the Savoy Theatre for a further six weeks.

The A Little Life play is based on Hanya Yanagihara’s 2015 novel of the same name. The bruising drama follows four classmates — Jude, Willem, JB, and Malcolm — as they graduate from college and move to New York City to pursue their dreams. As the decades pass by, it’s clear that the quartet’s lives revolve around Jude St. Francis.

On the surface, Jude is a high-flying lawyer who seems to have it all. But deep down, Jude remains haunted by his troubled childhood, with the repercussions of past events continuing to play out in his adult life. With ambition, addiction, and pride threatening to pull Jude and his peers apart, they learn the power of unlimited love.

Britain’s finest actors join forces for A Little Life in London. The BAFTA-nominated Happy Valley star James Norton returns to the West End to play Jude. He’s joined by Bridgerton’s Luke Thompson plays Willem, alongside It’s a Sin’s Omari Douglas as JB, and The Witcher’s Zach Wyatt as Malcolm. With a stellar cast and creative team, this will surely be one of the must-see West End plays in 2023. So make sure you enter the A Little Life lottery for a chance to win tickets.

Dramatic, Profound, Intense, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You like LGBTQ+ thematics and intense, dramatic plays. Beautifully acted. Was turning in my seat the whole time.

Don’t see it if You’re easily impressed and don’t care for the plays that exploit pain. Topics like suicide and self-harm trigger you.

Outstanding, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You like a brilliant performance brilliantly acted. I was left emotionally drained it was a difficult watch.

Don’t see it if You are triggered by mental health and self harm and don’t want to cry in the theatre

Intense, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you're a fan of James Norton. He is amazing in this. He rarely leaves the stage for this 3+ hour show.

Don’t see it if if the sight of blood makes you nauseous. There's a lot of cutting and constant cleaning of blood on stage.

Traumatic, Harrowing, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if James Norton has secured his Olivier for this season in what’s possibly the best show I’ve ever seen.

Don’t see it if It’s very long, and the amount of trigger warnings won’t fit here, so be prepared going in, it’s a lot.

More information about A Little Life - Harold Pinter Theatre

Ivo van Hove, Koen Tachelet, and Hanya Yanagihara collaborate on transforming the epic story into a piece of visionary theatre that speaks to modern times. Ivo van Hove’s recent directorial credits see him helming stories based on troubled characters: The Human Voice, All About Eve, and Network to name a few.

Alongside longtime collaborator Jan Versweyveld, van Hove adds a powerful, emotional intensity to Jude’s complex story that you can’t find in the book. You’ll have to see A Little Life on stage to fully understand Jude’s mind.

Koen Tachelet’s adaptation premiered in Amsterdam in 2018. The Dutch-language production then played at the 2022 Edinburgh International Festival, before an American transfer at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The West End run is the UK premiere of A Little Life in English.

What to Watch For:

  • The Hawaii-born author Hanya Yanagihara’s released three books: The People in the Trees, A Little Life, and To Paradise.
  • A Little Life won the Kirkus Prize for Fiction in 2015. It’s in company with Raven Leilani’s Luster and Colson Whitehead’s The Nickel Boys.
  • In a 2019 survey conducted by The Guardian, A Little Life placed in the top 100 books of the 21st century. It joined Fun Home as two novels both adapted for the stage.
  • Zubin Varla, Nathalie Armin, and Emilio Doorgasingh also star, as well as Elliot Cowan who multi-roles as different characters.
