Pilgrims by Elinor Cook

Guildhall School of Music & Drama

A woman with her eyes closed

Elinor Cook's Pilgrims explores love, betrayal and adventure. Can love conquer ambition? And whose story will ultimately be remembered?

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.
