In an exciting new adaptation by innovative theatre company Inspector Sands, Emily Brontë's turbulent tale is brought to life in surprising and relevant ways.
Taking the classic novel into sharp contemporary focus Inspector Sands bring their characteristic humour, passion and pathos to the infamous love story of Heathcliff and Catherine. Haunted by their past, we follow the experience of a dysfunctional family portrait over several generations.
This not-to-be-missed theatrical experience will contain violence, peril, social awkwardness, exhilarating music, high winds and mud…
★★★★★ 'Weirdly, wonderfully, entertaining' 'a deliciously dark Brontë with its jagged edges restored.' - The Guardian
★★★★★ 'A hugely talented cast, a mind-blowing adaptation and a fantastic night of theatre!' - West End Best Friend
