"What elevates ‘Touching the Void’ from ‘well-judged’ to ‘spine-tingling’ is Morris’s exemplary staging, in cahoots with a crack creative team headed by designer Ti Green and movement director Sasha Milavic Davies."
"[...] director Tom Morris and writer David Greig have turned this epic but lonely ordeal into a compelling piece of theatre. Their breathlessly exciting production, first staged at Bristol Old Vic, conjures wide-open landscapes and vertiginous drops."
"Morris’ production layers on the tension impressively in the first half, but the later scenes, in which Joe, at the brink of death, painfully edges his way towards salvation, can’t quite match this heart-in-mouth quality [...] What the production does well, however, is make it possible to appreciate Simon’s horrific predicament in leaving his climbing partner behind."
