A lunchtime theatre event. A real Highland collaboration, this terrific one man play is written by locally based John Burns, directed by talented Eden Court staff members Catherine MacNeil and Melissa MacDonald. Music by renowned Highland musician Bob Pegg.
Was George Malory the first man to climb Everest? It’s 90 years since he and Andrew Irvine vanished into the mist on their final push toward the unconquered summit of Everest. They were never seen alive again and passed into mountaineering legend. Whether they were the first to climb the mountain, thirty years before Hilary, is a debate that still rages. What if Mallory had survived the mountain, what ghosts would have haunted him?
First performed at the Edinburgh Fringe by actor and mountaineer John Burns. The play provides a fascinating insight into the mind of a man torn between his love for his wife Ruth and his relentless, burning desire to be the first man to reach the highest point on earth. Beyond Everest is a human story told with humour and passion and poses the question; what if Mallory had survived the mountain, what ghosts would have haunted him.
