The passionate but doomed relationship between Cathy and Heathcliff – and its destructive impact on those surrounding them – is one of the most famous and enduring love stories in the English language. In Lucy Gough’s adaptation for the stage, the spirit of Emily Brontë’s haunting novel is brought to exhilarating life.
Growing up together on the Yorkshire moors, Catherine Earnshaw and the gypsy Heathcliff are inseparable after he is adopted into her family. But when Catherine agrees to marry the refined Edgar Linton, Heathcliff setshis mind to revenge.
This eminently actable, and readable, version of the well-loved story was first staged by Aberystwyth Arts Centre in 2011, before touring. It is ideal for students and amateurs, as well as professional companies, who are looking for a full-blooded and fluent adaptation of a literary classic.
