Vicky Graham Productions, HighTide and Theatr Clwyd 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.
★★★★ “provocative… thoughtful and quietly poetic” (The Times)
★★★★ “A gorgeous piece, gorgeously produced, Pilgrims is playwrighting at its peak” (WhatsOnStage)
★★★★ “poetic and quietly insightful… contributes intelligently to the debate” (Evening Standard)
