by Emily Brontë, adapted by Emma Rice
A National Theatre and Wise Children co-production in association with York Theatre Royal
A romantic revenge tragedy.
Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted into the Earnshaws’ farmhouse home of Wuthering Heights.
Lost in his new surroundings, he finds a kindred spirit in Catherine Earnshaw, and their fierce love ignites. But when forced apart, they unleash a brutal chain of events that will haunt generations to come.
Shot through with music, dance, passion and hope, Emma Rice (Romantics Anonymous, Wise Children, Brief Encounter) transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a uniquely theatrical experience. Lucy McCormick (Post Popular) and John Pfumojena (Peter Pan) lead the company of performers and musicians.
