A Little Life

US Premiere

Based on the novel by Hanya Yanagihara
Internationaal Theater Amsterdam
Concept and direction by Ivo van Hove


Part of Next Wave 2022
No book has captivated and moved millions of readers during the past few years like A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.

In this epic, worldwide bestselling novel, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award in 2015, the complex relationships between four ambitious friends—a lawyer, an actor, an architect, and an artist—unfold over more than three decades. Adapted for the stage by celebrated director Ivo van Hove, this harrowing story follows them from college into the pressures of middle age in New York City. Jude, the troubled protagonist, is an introverted lawyer. Intense friendships are everything to him. Fearing intimacy as much as he hungers for it, his physical and mental well-being are at stake. The book and the play, both requiring total surrender, test the profound limits and potential of love.

Note: This show includes strong language, nudity, violence, and content about suicide.
