Click here for tickets £15.00

May 26-29   

A global live broadcast of the West End hit Touching the Void, based on a true story of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates’ perilous descent of Siula Grande in the freezing peaks of the Peruvian Andes. This terrifying struggle for survival will be streamed by the Bristol Old Vic this week for four performances only.
Perched on an unstable snow-cliff and battered by freezing winds, Simon is desperate to rescue his injured climbing partner who hangs from a rope below him. Meanwhile, Joe teeters on the brink of death and despair in a crevasse from which he can’t possibly climb to safety.
Directed by Tony Award-winning Tom Morris and based on Joe Simpson’s bestselling memoir turned BAFTA-winning film.
