WUDS: Wuthering Heights
by April de Angelis
Wed 2 - Sat 5 Mar 2016 7.45pm
Set on the wild and windswept Yorkshire moors, Wuthering Heights is the tempestuous love story of the free-spirited Catherine and the brooding Heathcliff.
De Angelis’ unique adaptation captures the spirit of the characters, bringing Brontë’s classic tale to life.
Lottie wants to encourage her audience to enter the studio with open minds and willingness to experience a new Wuthering Heights, and maybe even a new type of drama to what they are expecting. This is not a show about the passivity of the reader but about the inclusive power of readership and exploration of multiple layers of writing and imagination that has spanned centuries leading up to this production. With the opportunity to work with new stage levels, a studio balcony and a great cast of talented students, Lottie can’t wait to challenge her audience to participate in a world of active-observational experience. Her project has been a huge challenge to take on and compromises have had to be made as is the nature of voluntary, student dramatics. But with the team and high energy, passion and interest that is circulating this performance I can’t wait to see the outcome. (Abi Browning)
