In an exciting new venture, the team behind Lamplighter’s unanimously acclaimed The Life and Times of Fanny Hill, join the OSC to co-produce April de Angelis’ striking stage adaption of Emily Brontë’s spell-binding Wuthering Heights.

One of the most powerful love stories ever written by the great feminist writer of her age is brought to the stage by our leading feminist playwright.

April will be casting fresh eyes on her original text, originally commissioned by Birmingham rep in 2008 alongside director Michael Oakley (As You Like 2014 It and Private Lives 2018 for OSC) and composer Pete Flood (formerly of folk sensation Bellowhead) who both achieved excellent reviews for their work on Fanny Hill.

Perhaps the most (in)famous romance in the literary canon this superlative tale of love and revenge – the tempestuous relationship of Heathcliff and Cathy from children to thwarted adults – is a timeless icon that continues to captivate audiences young and old to this day.

When Mr Earnshaw brings home the young “dark eyed boy” from unknown origins nobody is prepared for the astonishing relationship that unfolds between him and Earnshaw’s daughter Catherine – unleashing a tumult of passion affecting generations to come.

This fast-moving exhilarating adaptation shows us that true love knows no bounds and holds the ordinary world in contempt.
