Overview

“We don’t in general take to strangers here… unless they take to us first”

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…

Developed with the support of Bristol Old Vic Ferment, UCL Culture, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and Jacksons Lane.
