What is the Touching The Void London play about?
Joe Simpson’s internationally best-selling memoir and the adapted BAFTA-winning film follows his struggle after he stares death in the face. The story looks at the mental battle Simpson faces when fighting for survival in the Andes in 1985. Unable to climb to safety from a crevasse, he finds himself trapped, both physically and mentally as he hovers on the brink of death. Alongside this tragedy is the unforgettable dilemma that Simon Yates suffers. He, on the other hand, is perched on an unsteady snow-cliff, with high winds threatening his safety even further, as he tries desperately to save his climbing partner who hangs on a rope below. Despite knowing the risks, he makes the perilous decision to cut the rope, changing both of their lives forever.
