“A seriously smart new play... a restless piece of writing that keeps chipping away at itself, leaving sharp and glittering edges exposed.” — Time Out
A play about adventure, betrayal, and man's impulse to conquer the world.
Dan and Will climb mountains. Aged eighteen, they climbed Everest. They became legends.
Rachel isn't interested in being a character in Dan's story. She intends to make her own. But with the thrill of a climb just days away, it's not just principles, but people, in danger.
Elinor Cook's play Pilgrims premiered at HighTide Festival 2016, in a co-production with HighTide, Theatr Clwyd and Vicky Graham Productions, directed by Tamara Harvey.
