See it if If you like innovative theatre that’s breathing new life into old classics
Don't see it if It’s a LONG show so if you don’t think you’ll vibe with a complex storyline with lots of characters then maybe give it a miss
See it if You like and know of the book - willing to be patient and keep an open mind. Love the National style and enjoy musical drama!
Don't see it if You’re not a patient viewer - first act is very busy with a lot of information. Second act is wonderful and much more is made sense!
See it if You are interested in an adaptation of a classic novel that resonates with the present and incorporates music, dance and comedy!
Don't see it if Nothing to add! All of us loved it, I think the play caters to many!
Even though her take on ‘Wuthering Heights’ includes every single stylistic quirk and hallmark you expect it to ... Rice is simply a very, very good storyteller. Atmospherically, it’s a triumph.
Design, music, video and puppetry – notably dogs represented by skulls mounted on scythes – are seamlessly integrated. Rice’s production is an involving, full-throated pleasure to watch.
The atmosphere is more gooey than gritty ... As satisfying as the book? No. The best staging ever? Surely not. Yet it’s an invitation to let our imagination roam free together: that feels invaluable right now.
Overall, this production has a bit of an identity crisis. While it’s refreshing to enjoy and even laugh at such a dismal story, when the play does try to convey gravitas, the moment loses some of its credibility...Rice provides a fresh take on the story that has the potential to entice a few lost readers.
Rice does a fairly remarkable job in making the text as lucid as it is, even if depth of character is sacrificed for breadth of narrative. In the end, it is the tireless ensemble who anchor the show.
Rice’s anarchic adaptation preserves that feral quality, with the Moor itself telling the doomed love story of Cathy (Lucy McCormick) and Heathcliff (Ash Hunter), but doesn’t do enough to keep up its energy.
