The Meteor

The saga of the first successful climb of Mount Everest is one of the world’s most well-known human adventures. The mountain, and the two men who laboured up its slopes in May of 1953, fused into a singular cultural shockwave, roaring like an avalanche over the people and territories below, and rushing beyond into an astounded world.

The play recreates the 1953 summit day on Mt. Everest, then imagines how the climbers, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary, might explore their achievement and its repercussions with each other, in a future-envisioned ‘summit’ of their own.

Please note: The theatre will be unheated during Act I, to reflect the mountain environment.
