Hanya Yanagihara’s bestseller is the epitome of a guilty page-turner. Each chapter heaps fresh pain on its traumatised protagonist, Jude St. Francis. An everyday epic about four college friends living in New York, A Little Life spins off into a spiral of secretive self-harm. Ivo van Hove transforms it into a parable for a nation that keeps re-opening old wounds in an ambitious staging that is as transfixing as the original novel was gripping. It is an awful thing to watch, but for just over four hours, you simply cannot look away.

“Ivo van Hove’s production is as gruelling yet compulsive as Hanya Yanagihara’s source novel. This is van Hove at his best, theatre that leaves an ineradicable mark.”
