Coming direct from London and New York, this critically acclaimed adaptation of Wuthering Heights is an epic and thrilling story of love, revenge and hope.

For two weeks only: Wuthering Heights at DeLaMar

Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted by Mr. Earnshaw and taken to live at Wuthering Heights. In his daughter, Catherine, Heathcliff finds a kindred spirit, and a fierce and enduring love ignites. However, when forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Shot through with music, humour, puppetry and dance, this production of Wuthering Heights transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a passionate, powerful and uniquely theatrical experience. An intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time, it warns that our cruel treatment of others affects the world for years to come.

This original English-language production will be shown exclusively at DeLaMar for two weeks only, at the initiative of Sismo Stories & Performances and as a part of the Holland Festival
