Last Ascent

The New Coordinates theatre troupe tells new stories. Company members shepherd a playscript from the spark of an idea to a complete draft. Since its existence, the company has produced thirty-two world premieres.

A world premiere that has caught our eye is Last Ascent by Kristin Idaszak.

Iris is a mountain climber who specializes in high, difficult ascents. When diagnosed with a heart condition that may prevent her from ever climbing again, she reluctantly turns to a therapist who specializes in supporting elite adventure athletes.

But as her therapist pushes her to unfurl a tragic accident that changed her life forever, Iris begins unpacking a whole lot more than she bargained for.

Simultaneously moving forward and backward in time, “Last Ascent” investigates grief, chronic illness, imperialism, and the ecological devastation wreaking havoc on our planet and on our bodies.

Yeah, we thought you’d like this.
