'Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being. So don't talk of our separation again: it is impracticable; and—'
Set amongst the wilderness of the 'heath and harebells,' Emily Brontë's first and only novel recollects the love story of Heathcliff and Catherine. Brontë's 'strange book' is listed as both: number one love story of all time by the guardian and yet 'a dark tale told darkly' by Literary World.
3Bugs brings Wuthering Heights to The Guild of Students with a revised focus on the disillusionment of the play, disillusionment that seems uncannily like that of the unfulfilled generation of the 1980s. This production of Wuthering Heights will bear reference to the music and image of the era, whilst remaining faithful to the veracities of the text.
'In spite of the disgusting coursness of much of the dialogue, and the improbabilities of much of the plot, we are spellbound.' (Literary World)
