Touching The Void Tickets
Following its sell-out world-premiere in 2018, “Tom Morris’ most accomplished project since War Horse” (The Telegraph) transfers to London.
What happens when you look death squarely in the face and how do you find the strength to crawl back towards life?
Joe Simpson’s best-selling memoir, turned BAFTA-winning film, charts his struggle for survival in the Andes in 1985. The heart of the story is Joe Simpson’s mental battle as he teeters on the brink of death and despair in a crevasse from which he can’t possibly climb to safety.
Alongside this is the appalling dilemma of Simon Yates, perched on an unstable snow-cliff, battered by freezing winds and desperate to rescue his injured climbing partner who hangs from a rope below him.
