Refreshing, Must see, Great acting

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

Intense, Confusing, Great acting, Funny, Clever

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!

Time Out New York

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.

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.

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.

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.

London Theatre

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.

The Arts Desk

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.
