Appearing in the West End transfer are original cast members Fiona Hampton, Patrick McNamee and Josh Williams, joined by Angus Yellowlees, making his professional stage debut.

Touching the Void has design by Ti Green, lighting by Chris Davey, composition and sound design by Jon Nicholls, movement by Sasha Milavic Davies and casting by Jill Green.

It runs at the Duke of York's Theatre until 29 February 2020, with tickets on sale now.
