“They may bury me twelve foot deep and throw the church down over me, but I won’t rest till you are with me. I dare you now, Heathcliff, will you come?”
Growing up together on the Yorkshire Moors, Catherine Earnshaw and the gypsy Heathcliff are inseparable after he is adopted into her family. But when Catherine agrees to marry the refined Edgar Linton, Heathcliff sets his mind to revenge.
The passionate but doomed relationship between Cathy and Heathcliff – and its destructive impact on those surrounding them – is one of the most famous and enduring love stories in the English language. In Lucy Gough’s ‘darkly gripping’ adaptation for the stage, the spirit of Emily Brontë’s haunting novel is brought to exhilarating life.
