Based on Joe Simpson’s bestselling memoir turned BAFTA-winning film, David Greig’s thrilling adaptation charts this astonishing feat of human endurance.

Life-affirming and often darkly funny, 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 recounts Joe Simpson’s struggle for survival after an accident leaves him stranded with a shattered leg on Siula Grande mountain in the Peruvian Andes.

His climbing partner, Simon Yates, attempts a near impossible rescue, but when Joe disappears over an ice cliff, Simon, battered by freezing winds and tethered to his injured partner, makes the heart-wrenching decision to cut the rope.

Touching the Void is Apollinaire’s third production of a David Greig play, following The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart in 2019 (Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Ensemble) and MidSummer in 2015.

Greig is a multi-award-winning playwright and the Artistic Director of the Royal Lyceum Edinburgh.

His adaptation of Touching the Void premiered at the Bristol Old Vic in 2018 and transferred to the Duke of York's Theatre in London's West End.
