A Wuthering Heights adaptation at New York's Off-Off Broadway:
Wuthering Heights (...Just the Height Points...)
Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street, between Rivington and Delancey)

Created by the Company
Directed by James Wyrwicz
Performed by: Dylan Arredondo, Keara Benton, Cassidy Dawn Graves, Kadence Neill, Lawrence Richardson, Ry Szelong
Sound Design by Ryan Courtney
Dramaturgy by Megan Burnett

This is a work in process showing of a new piece inspired by Emily Brontë's 1847 novel, "Wuthering Heights." Amidst the harsh English country side, passion consumes two lovers. Maybe you read it in high school or maybe you pretended to read it. But needless to say, it ends badly. (It's basically the same plot as the third book in The Twilight Saga.) Wuthering Heights (...Just the Height Points...) explores desire, destruction, queerness, and everyone's favorite teen vampire books.
