Wuthering Heights

Emily Brontë, adapted by Andrew Sheridan

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

"I cannot live without my soul'.

Cathy and Heathcliff are a pair whose very names are synonymous with passionate desire: the ardent flame of their love, set against Gothic mists and earthy, rugged moorland, effloresces with fresh vibrancy in Andrew Sheridan's entrancingly poetic rendering of
Wuthering Heights.

With all of the sustained intensity of the original text, Sheridan's script conjures a thrilling, dream-like environment in which exterior and interior worlds blur. With inner lives coalescing amidst snatches of song and hauntingly fragmented dialogue, Sheridan's reformulation of Bronte's masterpiece lends a classic tale an arrestingly modern edge.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and above.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
