Today, September 7, in New York:

The Misfits Theatre Company presents
Oh Heroine How I Love You!
Written and directed by Callie Nestleroth
Performed and composed by Sara Page
Jefferson Market Library, 425 6th Ave, New York, NY
September 7, 2019, 8 p.m.

Experience historic Jefferson Market Library transform with The Heroine Chronicles' production created specifically for library spaces, Oh Heroine How I Love You! Join the world of Cathy Earnshaw (Sara Page), the heroine from Emily Brontë's classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book. Whether from the many film adaptations, or Kate Bush's singular song, Cathy and Heathcliff are infamous characters. But do we ever consider the effect they have on their author, or those who learn their story?
A ghostly character, Cathy's grasp on reality is fraught. Be taken along for the ride as she wanders lost on the Yorkshire Moors, and catapults between her worlds created in adaptation. As you experience Wuthering Heights come to life around you, will assisting Cathy actually end up helping her author, Emily Brontë?
Oh Heroine How I Love You! is a site-specific, immersive, experiential piece of literary performance art. Audiences will be asked to interact with the performer and the space. Those in attendance should prepare to walk up and downstairs, following the performer around the Jefferson Market Library (after hours!) and stand during sections of the piece.
