Synopsis
‘How a human being could have attempted such a book without committing suicide before he had finished a dozen chapters, is a mystery. It is a compound of vulgar depravity and unnatural horrors.’ - Graham’s Lady Magazine, 1848
Inspector Sands collaborate with Central students (in a first attempt) to bring to life Emily Brontë’s classic novel of thwarted love and slow-burning revenge, played out on the Yorkshire moors.
Expect wildness, despair, passion, hate, mysterious illness, tangled family trees, snarling dogs, mud and fist fights.
