Experience Wise Children’s Wuthering Heights on January 27 through February 19 at The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare.
Groundbreaking theatermaker Emma Rice returns with an exuberant reimagining of Emily Brontë’s gothic masterpiece, Wuthering Heights. Live music, dance, puppetry, and a dash of impish irreverence combine in an intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time. On the wild moors of Yorkshire, an orphaned Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights, where he finds a kindred spirit in Catherine. As they grow up together, a fierce love ignites between them—and when forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed in an epic story of passion, revenge, and redemption.
This celebrated co-production from the UK is part of Chicago Shakespeare’s WorldStage Series—a landmark commitment to bring the world’s great theaters to Chicago and Chicago Shakespeare to the world.
A co-production with the National Theatre, Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic, and York Theatre Royal in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre | based on the novel by Emily Brontë | adapted & directed by Emma Rice.
