The performance will last 7 hours and includes two intervals plus a 45-minute break and two pauses.
Dialogue is presented in English, French, German and Japanese with English subtitles.
A co-production with Chekhov International Theatre Festival, Moscow, the National Theatre, London, and Le Diamant, Québec.
First staged at the National Theatre in 1996, Robert Lepage's masterpiece returns to London for just nine performances.
Presented as part of a world tour, this new staging marks 75 years since the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima.
Tracing survivors and their descendants across five decades, this giant theatrical journey through time and space explores the way in which a few kilograms of uranium falling on Japan changed the course of human history.
