The Play

Filled with music and dance, groundbreaking director Emma Rice transforms Brontë’s novel into a passionate and powerful theatrical experience. The wild moors of Yorkshire are the setting for an epic story of love, revenge, and redemption. An orphaned Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights—where he finds a kindred spirit in Catherine and, as they grow up together, a fierce love ignites between them. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed. London’s The Telegraph declares, "it unleashes the fire and the fury of Brontë’s masterpiece in a full-throttle show.”
