Bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code to hit the stage in London

by | Jun 29, 2020 | News

Dan Brown’s bestselling crime novel The Da Vinci Code is being adapted into a stage play.

The Da Vinci Code will make its premiere during a UK tour in 2021, opening at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley on 3 April 2021.

The play tells the story of Professor Robert Langdon and fellow cryptologist Sophie Neveu as they investigate the brutal murder of the curator of the Louvre, solving a series of baffling clues to unravel a vast conspiracy.

Brown’s novel has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling novel of the 21st Century. In 2006, it was adapted into a blockbuster film starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou.

“The team making the production has been faithful to the book, but will also bring something new for the audience, in what is certain to be a gripping, fast-paced stage thriller and a thoroughly entertaining show.”

The book is being adapted by Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel, and is set to be directed by Luke Sheppard, who recently directed the West End musical and Juliet.

Sheppard said: “Cracking The Da Vinci Code open for the stage reveals an epic thriller steeped in theatrical potential, rich in suspense and surprising at every turn.

“Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel’s brilliant adaptation leaps off the page and demands us to push the limits of our imagination, creating a production that champions dynamic theatrical storytelling and places the audience up close in the heat of this gripping mystery.”
