Wuthering HeightsBased on the novel by Emily Brontë, adapted and directed by Emma Rice
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Emotionally epic entertainment
The Yorkshire moors tell an epic story of love, revenge and redemption.
Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights. He finds a kindred spirit in Catherine Earnshaw and a fierce love ignites. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.
Shot through with music, dance, passion and hope, Emma Rice (Romantics Anonymous, Brief Encounter) transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a powerful and uniquely theatrical experience.
Lucy McCormick (Post Popular) and Ash Hunter (Hamilton) lead the company of performers and musicians in this intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time.
“I am Heathcliff! Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
A National Theatre, Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal co-production
