Touching The Void Information

The West End transfer of Touching The Void has now opened at the Duke of York's Theatre, following its critically acclaimed world premiere in 2018 and a run at Bristol Old Vic in March 2019.

Directed by the award-winning Tom Morris (War Horse) and based on Joe Simpson's best-selling memoir, turned BAFTA-winning film, this extraordinary story charts Joe Simpson's and Simon Yates' struggle for survival on the perilous Siula Grande mountain in the Peruvian Andes.
