In some exciting news for the London theatre scene, it has been announced that a stage production of Slumdog Millionaire could be playing to audiences in the capital as early as next year.
It was a smash hit when it first featured in cinemas back in 2008, winning an incredible eight academy awards and garnering over £377million from the box office. It is an adaptation of Vikas Swarup’s novel ‘Q&A’, telling the story of Jamal Malik whose life changes after appearing on the Indian version of ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’.
The stage version is set to be created by David Hare, the man behind other successful spectacles including ‘The Power of Yes’, ‘Something Happens’, ‘Gethesmane’ and ‘Skylight’. Set to feature at the National Theatre as early as 2014, it would be a fantastic addition to the already renowned stage scene in London. If you want to take a well deserved break from studying for your computer science degree in the city, enjoying a stage show could be just what you need.
