Slipped Disc recommends watching Wise Children's Wuthering Heights, which is available this weekend on demand.
Escape to the Yorkshire Moors and experience Wise Children’s ‘wildly imaginative and exhilarating’adaptation of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, filmed live from Bristol Old Vic’s 255-year-old Georgian theatre in front of a live audience this Nov, and available to watch digitally, wherever you are in the world.
Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights. He finds a kindred spirit in Catherine Earnshaw and a fierce love ignites. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed. Shot through with music, dance, passion and hope, director Emma Rice is the darling of the theatrical establishment, the queen of whimsy, and here she transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a uniquely theatrical experience and intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time.
Starring Lucy McCormick  and Ash Hunter with music performed by Sid Goldsmith, Nadine Lee and Renell Shaw.​
November 26 for 48hrs livestream.
The show will be available to watch anytime, as many times as you like, from 7pm GMT on Fri 26 November until 7pm GMT on Sun 28 November (Ruth Leon)
Slipped Disc also announces the death of British composer Gordon Crosse.
Crosse, who was 84, was prone to literary inspirations. Memories of Morning: Night is based on Jean Rhys’ novel Wide Sargasso Sea; World Within is an Emily Brontë tribute. (Norman Lebrecht)
Sara Tor writes in The Times:
Stashed away on a bookshelf we have an old copy of Wuthering Heights, together with Agnes Grey, taken from the library of Lowertown Wesleyan Sunday School in Oxenhope, right in the middle of Brontë country. Although the library doesn’t exist any more, I was trying to work out the fine we’d incur if we took Wuthering Heights back. Unsure of when it was taken out, I flicked through the book looking for clues. It was then that I found a bookmark: a scrap of paper that on further inspection appeared to have been torn out of the Bible. So, we’re probably in great debt, we own a book stolen from a church and, to top it off, someone has marked their place with a scrunched-up bit of holy text. My whole family is going to hell in a handcart.
El Diario (Argentina) recommends Celia Paul's autobiography Self-Portrait.
Como sea, el libro es buenísimo. La maternidad, la relación con sus padres, sus hermanas, las esperas, el tironeo entre el amor y el arte, la sumisión, la entrega. Hay partes muy siglo XIX: Flaubert o las Brontë (casualmente o no, desde su casa en Bradford se veía Haworth donde vivieron las Brontë). (Florencia Ure and Santiago Llach) (Translation)
