Emily Bronte's classic tale of love and revenge is the first to come to Roundhay Park
Heartbreak Productions present a summer of outdoor theatre at Roundhay Park and Temple Newsam, and it's kicking off with a production of the classic Wuthering Heights.
Welcome all to this evening’s gathering of S.S.I.P.P, or the Society of Scientific Investigation into Paranormal Phenomena! Tonight, we attempt to investigate the truth behind the existence of the paranormal world. Grab your torch and gather your courage as our first stop is the ruin believed to have inspired the story of Wuthering Heights…
Prepare for an evening of thrills, chills, and ghostly spirits where we hope to find the souls of the infamous Cathy and Heathcliff, former inhabitants of notorious Wuthering Heights. If you are unfamiliar with the story behind these restless spirits, Heathcliff was an orphan raised amongst the Earnshaw family at their home on the moors. He developed an intense and unearthly bond with Mr. Earnshaw’s passionate daughter, Cathy.
Driven apart by Cathy’s ambition for social elevation, Heathcliff turns vengeful and sets out to enact a torturous scheme of revenge on the next generation of Earnshaws. Together we hope to unveil the mystery of their unruly and passionate love affair that is reputed to extend beyond the grave.
Join Heartbreak Productions for this outdoor adaptation of Emily Bronte’s haunting tale of two restless souls as wild and untamed as the bleak Yorkshire moors. Pack a chair or blanket, a picnic, and dress for the weather, as together we exhume a ghostly tale of wandering spirits and reckless liaisons.
