Topic - Mallory -one-man play

Iíve been reading a lot about the earliest attempts on Everest and particularly about George Mallory. I think it would make a great one man play and Iím researching right now and looking at getting some funding to pull the thing together. Iím really excited by the prospect and I think it would generate a lot of interest.

If you donít know about Mallory the background is briefly this: On the 8th of June 1924 George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared into the mist a few thousand feet below the summit of Everest. They were never seen alive again and their disappearance has sparked one of longest running controversies in mountaineering. Were Mallory and Irvine the first to reach the summit of the worldís greatest peak? We will never know the answer and the evidence is contradictory.

So far I see the play a bit like this. Imagine if Mallory had not died on the mountain, if he had returned alone, Irvine having succumbed to altitude sickness on the descent. What would Mallory have become, what ghosts would have haunted him?
