I wore I wore a dress with a light jacket and I wrapped myself in the blanket the theater provided to all audience members, but it was still like being inside a refrigerator. Bring a down jacket. .

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.”  –Chicago Sun-Times

Description

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

Adapted by Christina Calvit

Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
