Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights remains one of the most powerful and passionate novels ever written. It is a classic tale of love, jealousy and pain that defies social boundaries and challenges death itself.
This acclaimed adaptation of Bronte’s classic novel stars ORLA BRADY (The Heart Surgeon) as the spirited Cathy and ROBERT CAVANAH (Cracker) as the dark, near-demonic Heathcliff.
Inseparable as children, Cathy and Heathcliff’s devotion to each other grows into a profound and dangerous passion as they become adults. The fates seem to conspire to force them apart, but nothing can break the bond between them that reaches beyond accepted human behaviour.
When Cathy dies during childbirth Heathcliff's unfathomable heartbreak is released in monumental, vengeful anger. But vengeance brings him little satisfaction and it is only when Cathy's ghost appears to him that he begins to sense the resolution that he craves. He longs for the death that will finally reunite him with his beloved Cathy.
This acclaimed adaptation of Bronte’s heart-wrenching novel takes a fresh approach to the story, adhering closely to the spirit of the original text. This production tells the whole story, from cradle to beyond the grave including the dark and supernatural forces which drive the central characters to their doom.
