Full Cast and Further Tour Dates Announced For Emma Rice's WUTHERING HEIGHTS

The production begins at Bristol Old Vic, 11 October – 6 November 2021.

With their latest production Bagdad Cafe streaming live via Old Vic: In Camera this week (25 - 28 August) Wise Children today announce full cast and further tour dates for the world première production of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the show is a co-production with The National Theatre, Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal.

Joining the cast alongside the previously announced Lucy McCormick (Cathy) are Sam Archer (Lockwood/Edgar Linton), Nandi Bhebhe (The Moor), Mirabelle Gremaud (swing), TJ Holmes (Robert), Ash Hunter (Heathcliff), Craig Johnson (Mr Earnshaw/Dr Kenneth), Jordan Laviniere (John), Kandaka Moore (Zillah), Katy Owen (Isabella Linton/Linton Heathcliff), Tama Phethean (Hindley Earnshaw/Hareton Earnshaw) and Witney White (Frances Earnshaw/Young Cathy), with music performed by Sid Goldsmith, Nadine Lee and Renell Shaw.

The production opens at Bristol Old Vic on 20 October, with previews from 11 October, and runs until 6 November, with livestreamed performances 3 - 6 November. It then transfers to York Theatre Royal, 9 - 20 November, and runs at The National Theatre in February and March 2022 (exact dates TBA) before touring to Cornwall and Norwich, in addition to the previously announced dates in Salford, Nottingham, Sunderland and Edinburgh.

The Yorkshire moors tell an epic story of love, revenge and redemption.

Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights. He finds a kindred spirit in Catherine Earnshaw and a fierce love ignites. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Shot through with music, dance, passion and hope, Emma Rice transforms Emily Brontë's masterpiece into a powerful and uniquely theatrical experience. Lucy McCormick leads the company of performers and musicians in this intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time.

"I am Heathcliff! Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."

With set and costume design by Vicki Mortimer; sound and video by Simon Baker; composition by Ian Ross; movement and choreography by Etta Murfitt; lighting design by Jai Morjaria.
