Touching The Void / West End transfer for thrilling adaptation
Touching The Void, a new stage adaptation based on Joe Simpson’s best-selling memoir will open at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End. The thrilling drama charts Simpson and his climbing partner Simon Yates’ extraordinary struggle for survival on the perilous Siula Grande mountain in the Peruvian Andes. When an accident throws Joe into the void, and with no hope of recovering him, Simon is faced with the agonising decision to cut the rope that binds them. 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. Directed by Bristol Old Vic's Tom Morris (War Horse, Swallows & Amazons), the creative team includes set and costume design by Ti Green, lighting design by Chris Davey, movement by Sasha Milavic Davies and sound design and composer Jon Nicholls. Tom Morris said: “This production has been an extraordinary journey into the unknown, inspired by one of the most compelling books I’ve ever opened. Simpson’s story drove my imagination wild with fear, excitement and hope. We hope this show will do the same for yours.” The production previously ran at Bristol Old Vic, Royal & Derngate, Northampton, Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Hong Kong Festival. Casting is to be announced. Touching The Void is booking from 9 November 2019 until 29 February 2020 at the Duke of York's Theatre, London.
