The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown's blockbuster novel, will make its stage debut on a UK tour in 2021, opening at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley on 3 April.

The curator of the Louvre has been brutally murdered and alongside his body is a series of baffling codes. Professor Robert Langdon and fellow cryptologist Sophie Heveu attempt to solve the riddles, leading to the works of Leonardo Da Vinci and beyond.

The novel has been adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff and the production will be directed by Luke Sheppard.

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."
