Touching The Void Tickets

London Play
Touching The Void is set to head to the Duke of York's Theatre this autumn for its long-awaited West End premiere.
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.

    Great production, manages to stage the unstagable in a very clever and creative way. Very powerful story, great cast. Explores the wider idea of why people climb as it drills down into one person’s interior world as he fights to live.

    Very entertaining and thrilling. The exposition requires the viewer to use their imagination. Well acted.

    I was wondering how they would do this and was greatly impressed with both the acting and stage design

    Brilliantly and imaginatively staged - compelling theatre

    Enjoyable evening seeing it from a different perspective having read the book and seen the film. The ending could lead to confusion thinking he died and maybe this being clearer could be helpful.

    The book was much better. The play dragged on a bit.

    Touched the heights

  • Review Avatar Nov 17, 2019

    Music a bit too loud and feel the stage could have been sloped a bit in order to give a better view of what was happening on the stage floor. But small points and overall a great show

  • Review Avatar Nov 17, 2019

    A brilliant play! The production is amazing. The production brings the vertical to the stage. However, it’s let down by the choice of theatre. The entire upper circle has extremely restricted views. Really needs the layout of a more modern theatre.

    Very clever staging to give an impression of the mountain on a stage.

  • Review Avatar Nov 17, 2019

    Brilliant and so well acted

  • Review Avatar Nov 17, 2019

    Gripping, but foul language not really necessary- female was a bit ‘goth’ so the eyes were not pleasant to look at unfortunately.

    A father-son visit too London to Watch the Saturday matinee of 'Touching the Void' at the Duke of York theatre. Having seen the documentary and read the book I was familiar with the story but my son was clueless... We both loved the stage adaption, the direction the acting and the twist of telling the story from a new perspective. Highly recommended :)

    Absolutely outstanding production with excellent performances by all performers. Having see the film and read the book, I was interested to see how it would be interpreted for the stage. Superbly was the answer! In addition, wonderful staff had found my lost earring when I asked at the end. Amazing evening!
