As part of its four-month national tour, shake & stir’s production of Emily Bronte’s much-loved gothic masterpiece, Wuthering Heights, will storm into Riverside Theatres on 22 and 23 March with its only Sydney performances.
Wuthering Heights tells the story of Heathcliff, a mysterious boy who is rescued from the street and brought to Wuthering Heights, where he develops a passionate bond with Catherine Earnshaw. As time passes, Heathcliff and Catherine’s relationship deepens to the point of dangerous obsession, until one day, Catherine marries another man. Overcome with jealousy, Heathcliff flees the Heights only to return, years later, ready to exact revenge on those he believed ruined his one chance at happiness.
Created by shake & stir, the company behind the critically acclaimed productions of George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984, Wuthering Heights is the next adaption in the company’s award-winning cannon.
shake & stir’s Artistic Director, Nick Skubij who adapted and directed this bold new work said, “Aside from being an outstanding story of revenge, love and loss, we chose Wuthering Heights to re-imagine as, with every shake & stir production, we aim to invigorate classics for a new audience.”
“Theatrically we are also pushing the boundaries and thanks to our esteemed design team Wuthering Heights will surprise and shock in all the right ways – we are literally bringing the natural elements into theatre,” adds Skubij.
Featuring a breathtaking design and a stellar cast, audiences are invited to settle in for a fresh and seductive adaptation of a classic story, and witness a rare opportunity to see this sweeping saga live at Riverside Theatres.
