The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games is brought to life by Robin De Levita and Imagine Nation, who have teamed up with Brent Council to build the venue. Featuring a capacity of 1,300 seats on a 360 degree revolving platform, Wembley Theatre will provide a ground-breaking way of presenting this new piece of theatre, which will see audiences entirely immersed in the Districts and horrifyingly violent Hunger Games.
Following the adventures of heroine Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games is the terrifying tale of 12 separate Districts in the world of Panem, all of which are forced to turn in two of their children each year as Tributes who must fight to the death. When Katniss steps up to volunteer in place her little sister, she is placed into fierce training that will prepare her for the Hunger Games. Soon, she learns that she must combine her quick-wit and ace bow and arrow skills in order to win. Accompanied by her mentor Haymitch and fellow Tribute Peeta, Katniss battles for her life against all odds.
Tony Award-winning producer Robin De Levita (Titanic, 42nd Street, Into the Woods) heads up the project alongside Dutch media company Imagine Nation to bring the production to London. De Levita has previously worked with rotating stages, receiving global rave reviews for his 2014 play ANNE. After the huge success of the blockbuster films starring Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson, The Hunger Games is set to be London’s next smash-hit.
