Aquila Theatre, “Wuthering Heights”
October 14, 7:30 p.m. in Corson Auditorium
Love, passion, and revenge. Be mesmerized by Emily Brontë’s words brought to life through Aquila Theatre’s heart-wrenching production of “Wuthering Heights.”
The novel, one of the most famous works of world literature, was first published in 1847 under a pseudonym and is Emily Brontë’s only work. Wuthering Heights recounts the tale of ill-fated lovers on the lonely moors of northern England. Heathcliff and Catherine meet as children when Catherine’s father brings the abandoned boy home to live with them. The two grow up together, living freely on the moors while Heathcliff is tormented by Catherine’s brother. When Catherine’s parents die, her brother turns Heathcliff out, forcing him to live among the servants. Catherine marries and the crushed Heathcliff disappears. Years later, a wealthy Heathcliff returns, but is it too late for them?
Wuthering Heights is a deep and wide story of passion, revenge, family, class, and the supernatural. Over a century and a half later, Brontë’s magnum opus remains incredibly moving.
