Free Solo

John Robinson was a world-renowned free solo climber. Until he fell to his death at the age of 43. Eleven years later, his daughter Hazel discovers his old climbing journal. She dives back into her childhood with her fearless, daredevil dad, desperate to answer one burning question: Who was her father? 

Featuring an uplifting original score with everything from folk to 90s cartoon theme songs, Free Solo is a powerful new musical about overcoming fear and what it means to belong to a family.

Free Solo was initially developed as part of the MA Musical Theatre at Goldsmiths, University of London.
