Announcing Wuthering Heights

We are very excited to announce that next year we’ll be partnering with the National Theatre and York Theatre Royal to create a new adaptation of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.

I loved Wuthering Heights with a passion as a teenager. I thought it was a love story, a wild romance.  I now find little love within its pages, but these multi layered readings are what makes it such a fascinating story. My Wuthering Heights promises to be a revenge tragedy for our time - but it will also be about hope. I want to wrestle hatred to the earth and let a new story grow. Wild and fierce, elemental and true - I cannot wait to start work on this timeless classic. And that is theatre romance, right there!

The production will open in the Lyttelton Theatre in autumn 2020 before touring across the UK, with venues to be announced soon.

It is a privilege and a pleasure to be returning to the National Theatre after 12 years - and even more exciting to be returning with Wise Children! This is an ambitious project with creative roots in Yorkshire and the South West - the National Theatre is the perfect place to nurture, create and home this special work. Even more thrilling to me is that this production will perform both on the South Bank and in venues across the UK. It is vitally important to both the National Theatre and Wise Children that we take work on the road and entertain audiences across the UK.

Watch this space for more news soon!
