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.
Touching The Void is booking from 9 November 2019 until 29 February 2020 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.
