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.

Thoroughly enjoyable adaptation of the renowned book and film. Very clever use of space, lighting and sound! Loved it

This is a really imaginative and thrilling telling of the story of Joe Simpson. Even though I knew about the event, this really brought it to life and the horrors that both mountaineers endured. An extremely physical performance by the actors was stunning. You don't need an interest in mountaineering to enjoy this play - anyone who is interested in how humans endure and win through will be totally absorbed from start to finish.

Amazing play! Thoroughly enjoyed it and was gripped from the outset. A definite must-see, even if you're not that interested in / knowledgeable about climbing!

Disappointed after having read the amazing true story. Felt the play lacked pace and gravitas. Good use of effects but characters felt week. Sorry.

Ideal for young adults and their parent s wrecked by the excessive and overuse of appalling language including the c word which has no place in our society mild use of language is ok this was ludicrous I was in a matinee performance with about 12 young boys what a great story however trying to be edgy made you look inane I have read the book and seen the film sadly this did not work it trivialised this epic endeavour Secondly what was the thing about the Music surely silence would have been more evocative Could have been the best performance in London f’up by presentation
