A Little Life

United Kingdom – 2023


Hanya Yanagihara’s novel A Little Life, about four college friends moving to New York City to follow their dreams, became a global bestseller. We meet actor Willem, architect Malcolm, artist JB, and lawyer Jude though times where ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull the group apart, yet they always find themselves bound by their love for Jude and the mysteries of his past.
But when his 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.

In collaboration with Vega Scene, we are delighted to present director Ivo van Hove’s stage production from The Savoy Theatre in London’s West End. This massive hit has now been filmed live on stage, and has its premiere in select cinemas internationally on the same day, September 28th.

Running time is 3 hours and 40 minutes, including intermission.
