Tom Morris’ production will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre from the 9th November.
Following successful runs at the Bristol Old Vic, Royal & Derngate, Northampton, Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, Hong Kong Festival as well as a UK tour, Touching the Void will be heading to the West End in November.
Casting for Tom Morris’ production will see original cast members Fiona Hampton, Patrick McNamee and Josh Williams return to the show, joined by Angus Yellowlees.
Based on the award-winning memoir by Joe Simpson, Touching the Void has been adapted for the stage by The Lyceum’s David Greig (The Events, The Suppliant Women, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). The creative team for the production includes designs by Ti Green, sound design and composer Jon Nicholls, lighting designer Chris Davey and movement director Sasha Milavic Davies.
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 will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre from the 9th November until the 29th February 2020. To book tickets click here or visit: Encore Tickets, See Tickets, Love Theatre.com, From the Box Office, Last Minute.com or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
