The wild and windy Yorkshire moors are heading to a Lancashire theatre.
The Chapterhouse Theatre Company is bringing its production of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights to The Grand Theatre in Lancaster.
Wuthering Heights is a classic love story, which has entranced for generations and is now renewed on stage in an adaptation by award-winning writer Laura Turner.
It has previously been presented out of doors, but is now coming indoors to the theatre.
Script writer Laura Turner, says she feels honoured to have had the opportunity to adapt one of her all-time favourite romantic novels.
She said: “When Chapterhouse asked me to write an adaptation of Wuthering Heights for this season I was really thrilled because I first read the novel when I was 14 and had a really strong reaction. It’s a bit like Marmite, people either love it or hate it, and I fell in love. It’s a challenging story to adapt, spanning two generations, but I hope that I have managed to instil all the passion and wildness of Emily Brontë’s masterpiece and that people fall for Catherine and Heathcliff just as I have.”
This year marks Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s 15th year touring the UK and Ireland, bringing to life some of literature’s finest classics in performances that are great fun for all the family.
This summer it has put on six fantastic shows, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Jungle Book.
Wuthering Heights will be at The Grand Theatre, St Leonardgate, Lancaster, on September 7 at7pm. Tickets cost £13 for aults and £9 for concessions.
