Emily Brontë's epic story of love, revenge, and redemption is transformed into a powerful new musical from National Theatre, Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic, and York Theatre Royal.
Bristol Old Vic's sold-out production of ''Touching the Void'' is a thrilling plunge into the depths of human resilience.
Directed by Tony Award-winner Tom Morris (War Horse), this adaptation of Joe Simpson's bestselling memoir follows the harrowing true story of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates' treacherous descent of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. Using groundbreaking filming techniques and a binaural soundscape, the production delivers an immersive experience, plunging viewers into the freezing heights of the Andes. As Simon battles the elements to save his injured climbing partner, Joe fights for survival in a crevasse, pushing the boundaries of human endurance.
'Nail-biting, you feel as if you’ve been to the ends of the earth without moving from your seat. A stirring testament to human fortitude and the power of theatre.' - The Telegraph
