I did not like Wuthering Heights quite as much as I have some of the recent productions at Lifeline, especially Treasure Island and Neverwhere. The performances were strong (as usual), but it was very plot-focused, when what I love about the book is the mood and atmosphere and spooky setting. With some of those elements stripped away you're left with a lot of drama and emotion that come across as a bit overwrought, even shrill. Still, it's a good introduction to the overall story, so that you can go back and dive into the novel and lose yourself in the misty moors.
Quotes & Highlights
- "As Lifeline Theatre’s feverish new stage version of the great gothic romance suggests, this tale also can be told with an almost balletic intensity and physicality - and with enough sound and fury, yearning and emotional heat - to verge on the hallucinatory." –<em>Chicago Sun-Times</em>
Inseparable from childhood, Heathcliff and Cathy believe themselves eternally bound. But when they are brutally torn apart, the resulting course of retribution provides an unflinching look into the cyclic nature of revenge and the unknowable passions of the heart. Travel across Yorkshire's stormy moors with one of literature's darkest antiheroes in this legendary tale of devotion and redemption. An epic love story, re-imagined as a highly physical work of powerful imagery by the award-winning adaptor and director of Mariette in Ecstasy.
A world premiere based on the novel by Emily Brontë
