A vivacious contagious love. Passion that lives beyond death
From the same team that created the multi-award nominated, Time Out Critic’s Choice Breakfast with Emma (2010) and Sense and Sensibility (2012), both of which played to packed houses at the Mill Studio, this brand new adaptation of Emily Brontë’s classic novel combines powerful acting, an original musical score with beautiful visual design-orientated storytelling.
I have been longing to adapt and direct Wuthering Heights for the stage for ages, it’s so wild and passionate. After directing many other adaptations of great classics, I felt I needed to write this one myself in the hope of presenting a theatrically imaginative vision that fully captures its essence. Wuthering Heights has always been one of my favourites – I love the gothic, supernatural elements; Cathy’s spirit knocking at the window, Heathcliff believing he sees her after her death. These elements are so exciting in performance and take the play way beyond your average romance.“
