“A gripping, inventively staged survival story”★★★★ The Stage

Best-selling book, award-winning film and now adapted for the stage by playwright David Greig, Touching the Void is one of the greatest true stories of adventure and survival.

Battered by freezing winds on an unstable snow-cliff high in the Andes and desperate to help his injured climbing partner who dangles from a rope below him, Simon Yates faces an appalling dilemma. Knowing they will both fall into the void beneath them, he cuts the line – a decision that will change their lives forever. In a deep crevasse from which he cannot possibly climb to safety, Joe Simpson teeters in mental anguish on the brink of death.

Staged by Tony Award-winner and Bristol Old Vic Artistic Director Tom Morris (The Grinning Man, War Horse, Swallows & Amazons) and adapted for the stage by award-winning writer and Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh Artistic Director David Greig (The Events, The Lorax, The Suppliant Women), this almost unbearably tense drama will have you clinging to the edge of your seat.
