This was an enjoyable production in which I got to learn to weld in order to create the vast mountains, and improve my routing skills whilst creating the floorboards. I also refined my skills in AutoCAD and learned to use our CNC Router on some personal projects.

With Everest already conquered aged 18, Dan and Will’s latest challenge is a peak that’s never been scaled. As well as their struggles during the adrenaline-fuelled climb – one pulling back, the other pushing on – they also both love Rachel. But Rachel isn’t interested in waiting on the side-lines or being a character in someone else’s story, she’s out to make her own.   

Can love conquer ambition? And whose story will ultimately be remembered?   

Georgia Green directs this fast-paced play about falling in love, betrayal and adventure by Elinor Cook, winner of the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright in 2013.
