Vicky Graham Productions, HighTide and Theatr Clwyd in association with The Yard Theatre present the world premiere of PILGRIMS by Elinor Cook:
“You just want to stick flags on virgin territory and claim it as your own.”
Dan and Will climb mountains. They long for the next big challenge, for the rush of discovering something new. When they climbed Everest aged 18 they became legends.
Rachel studies folklore. She prefers people to adventures. She thinks the world can be ruined by discovery, and people are always lost in the process.
With 16,000 feet to climb, can love conquer ambition?
Pilgrims is about adventure, betrayal, and man’s impulse to conquer the world.
A note from the producers:
We believe that the play may be of interest to the members of the North London Mountaineering Club as the two of the three central characters are mountaineers and one of the central themes of the play is that of adventure. Here is the link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkfgoQnKbzg and to a review of the production from its performances at the Aldeburgh festival: http://www.whatsonstage.com/reviews/pilgrims-hightide-festival-elinor-cook_41741.html where it has been described as “a gorgeous piece, gorgeously produced” and the play also received four stars from the Times, who described it as “powerful… thoughtful and quietly poetic”.
