For years, Sir Peter Shaffer CBE could claim to have written the hardest stage direction: “The men climb the Andes” in The Royal Hunt of the Sun. It’s got nothing on the struggle facing David Greig’s stage adaptation of Touching the Void. Joe Simpson’s best-selling mountaineering memoir is an exacting, agonising autobiographical account of his fall down a ravine and subsequent battle to escape with his life. Like Simpson, Greig is not one to shirk a challenge, nor is director Tom Morris of War Horse fame. Their five-star spectacle, staged on an incredible ice-like set, scales the heights.
