“Takes the classics off their pedestals and presents them as live action, flesh and blood adventures.” –Dramatics Magazine
Appearing for the first time in Tucson, Aquila Theatre brings these time tested classics to an intimate, 400-seat theatre, lending its dynamic physical approach to two of the most famous works of world literature: The Tempest, Shakespeare’s magical tale of forgiveness and enlightenment, and Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë’s story of all-consuming passion.
Synopsis: Wuthering Heights, one of the most famous works of world literature, was first published as a novel in 1847 under a pseudonym and is Emily Bronte’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, Bronte’s magnum opus remains incredibly moving.
