Theatre REVIEW: Wuthering Heights - ★★★★★

The epic story of love, revenge and redemption.

Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff (Liam Tamne) is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights.

In their daughter Catherine (Lucy McCormick), Heathcliff finds a kindred spirit and a fierce love ignites. But, when forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Shot through with music and dance, Emma Rice (Rebecca, Wise Children, Brief Encounter) transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a passionate, powerful and unique theatrical experience.

Adapted and directed by Emma Rice.

A National Theatre, Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal co-production.



King's Theatre, Edinburgh - until 28th May



Cameron (Age 18) - ★★★★★

"A classic novel like Wuthering Heights could be delivered in many ways. The pleasant surprise with Wise Children’s production is its fresh and novel delivery. Wuthering Heights excels in finding the right balance between the tragic events on the Yorkshire Moors and comedic moments. In particular, Katy Owen’s characterisation of Isabella Linton and Little Linton is constantly witty and clever. The use of stage set, and clever ensemble pieces combined with imaginative use of props create a believable atmosphere for a range of scenes. The entire cast flow well together to create a finalised piece of theatre.

With a run time of almost three hours, the show can feel a little long at some points. Despite this, Wuthering Heights is innovative and creative and this is what makes it worth seeing."
