A gorgeous piece gorgeously produced, Pilgrims is playwriting at its peak

HighTide, Theatr Clwyd and Vicky Graham Productions present the world premiere of Pilgrims

“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. Theatr Clwyd Logo Black VGP Black Logo
