WUTHERING HEIGHTS Re-imaged with All Male Cast

Wuthering Heights sees four performers explode their own experiences of being men in this bold and energetic theatrical debut from 'one of Scotland's most interesting young theatre makers' (The Scotsman). Revisiting and reimagining the iconic landscapes and character from Bronte's text, the men sing together full-throated and bold, recall poignant memorials of being a boy and dance optimistically to the howling tones of Kate Bush.

Almost 200 years after the book was published, and with Heathcliff's problematic masculinity as a comparative stimulus, the piece examines whether or not the lives and aspirations of men nowadays are different. What should be left behind in history? And what should be held onto as we move forward into the 21st century?

"Significant and intensely honest" -The Herald

"Simply sublime." -Fringe Review
