Adapted & Directed by Emma Rice. Based on the novel by Emily Brontë.

Emma Rice returns to Brighton Festival with her new company Wise Children following her previous sell out productions of Tristan & Yseult (2017) and The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk (2018). 

The Yorkshire Moors tell an epic story of love, revenge and redemption. 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 and a fierce love ignites. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Emily Brontë’s masterpiece is transformed into a powerful, uniquely theatrical and musical experience, with Rice's trademark playfulness. Lucy McCormick (Post Popular) and Liam Tamne (The Prince of Egypt and Doctors) lead the company.

'Emotionally epic entertainment.' ★★★★★
The Times

Daily Telegraph
