By Robert Johanson. Adapted from the book by Emily Bronte.
Cast: 7m., 4w. (1 extra m., 3 to 4 children.) From his first mysterious appearance, the dark and brooding Heathcliff affects the lives of all around him. When his beloved Catherine marries another, his revenge is diabolical. After her death, his grief is truly frightening. Greatly acclaimed in its premiere at the Paper Mill Playhouse: "A Wuthering Heights that's true to the book, a sobering reminder that it was never intended to be the classic love story Hollywood's revisionist history would suggest. Johanson's version is in many ways superior to the movie, especially with respect to telling the entire Bronte story of love, passion and revenge. Johanson provides a much more satisfying and believable ending than the ghosts of Heathcliff and Catherine walking happily into the sunset." (Daily Record) This adaptation does not sentimentalize Emily Bronte's cruel and passionate characters. Their turbulent actions and subsequent reper Flexible unit set.
