The Norwich Players present Wuthering Heights by Jo Clifford.
Through the windows of a gloomy house two children stare longingly into the night awaiting the return of their father from the city. He will bring something home: a boy. His name will be Heathcliff and his arrival will spark a passionate story of obsessive love and violent revenge. For some he will prove to be a gift from God, for others a curse from the Devil.
Emily Brontë’s passionate novel is wittily reimagined by Jo Clifford, ‘a key voice among a brilliant generation of Scottish playwrights.’ Famed for establishing the reputations of the Traverse Theatre Company, Clifford is one of Britain’s greatest adaptors of fiction, and her play of Dickens’ Great Expectations, a West End hit, was described by The Guardian as ‘a miracle of intelligent compression.’
