Wuthering Heights (stage version)

By Emily Brontë Adapted by Andrew Sheridan

When two souls collide, the impact can resonate for all eternity. So it was – and so it is – with Heathcliff and Cathy. But if they can't be together, the world that struggles to contain them will simply shatter and burn…

Andrew Sheridan's gripping reinvention of Emily Brontë's classic novel Wuthering Heights is a searing and ferocious celebration of passion, of desire – and of the female imagination that created this indelible masterpiece.

Exposing a very different but essentially truthful side to literature's most electric couple, it premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in 2020, in a production directed by Bryony Shanahan, joint Artistic Director of the theatre.

‘Will you be happy when I’m just dust, floating in the air?’

Press Quotes

'Embraces the extremity of the original… it feels at times almost like a ghost story'


'The story is Brontë's, but the most striking element of this version is the modern-sounding dialogue… manages to marry a nineteenth century tale with a modern idiom and make it work well, making the harshness and cruelty of the original freshly shocking to a modern audience without moving radically away from the original'

British Theatre Guide

'Channels the tumultuous emotions and elemental forces that have made it such an endearing favourite among audiences… flits feverishly between Brontë's beautifully evocative prose and a more anachronistic and profane re-imagining of her words'

The Stage

'Superb… Sheridan's script distills and elevates the emotional core of the book, bringing the story to fresh life'
