Touching The Void

Following its critically acclaimed, sold out World Premiere in 2018, Touching The Void transfers to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from 9 November.

Directed by the award-winning Tom Morris (War Horse) and based on Joe Simpson's best-selling memoir, turned BAFTA-winning film, this extraordinary story charts Joe Simpson’s and Simon Yates’ struggle for survival on the perilous Siula Grande mountain in the Peruvian Andes.

Life-affirming and often darkly funny, David Greig’s thrilling adaptation of Touching The Void takes the audience on an epic adventure that asks how far you’d be willing to go to survive.

  • Hugely enjoyable and gripping throughout

    We really enjoyed the show last night. Great acting, story telling and use of props and effects. It’s amazing how much the story was bought to life.

  • Excellent telling of an amazing inspiring true story

    23 January 2020

    I already knew this climbing story and had seen the Joe Simpson documentary, Touching the Void. But this didn't detract from the sense of urgency and tension. I was so impressed by the imaginative way the play was presented, suggesting mountains, ridges, cold icy conditions, and blizzards. The acting was amazing, professional, moving. Loved the music choice too. I would highly recommend this to both regular and infrequent theatre-goers. My one small criticism is that at times, when the blizzard was raging, and Richard was narrating what was happening, it was difficult to discern exactly what he was saying. The sounds drowned out his words.

    Extremely gripping drama. You forget you are in the theatre and it feels like you are on the mountain. The plot pulls you in from start to finish.
