Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights
A vivacious, contagious love. Passion that lives beyond death. This is a bold new adaptation of a classic love story. Powerful acting, original score and beautiful, visual design orientated storytelling comes to The Hawth this spring starring With Jack Benjamin, Emma Fenney, George Haynes, Lucinda Lloyd and Helen Watkinson.
Published just after Jane Eyre, this is arguably the masterpiece of the Brontë novels. This complex tale of cruelty, passion, jealousy and revenge charts the inhabitants of two isolated Yorkshire farmhouses over a period of two generations, and divided the readers of its day with its outspoken views on social mores. This brand new production comes from the same team that created the Multi Award Nominated Time Out Critic’s Choice Breakfast With Emma (2010) and Sense and Sensibility (2012).
