Carnfunnock Country Park is to host an adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic love story, Wuthering Heights, on Thursday July 24 at 7pm.

The story of love and passion, set on the Yorkshire moors, will be brought to life on stage in an adaptation by award winning writer Laura Turner.

This is the Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s fifteenth year of touring the UK and Ireland, bringing to life some of literature’s best loved classics in magical outdoor performances.

Script writer Laura said she felt honoured to have had the opportunity to adapt one of her all time favourite romantic novels. She commented: “I was really thrilled because I first read the novel when I was fourteen and had a really strong reaction.

“It’s a challenging story to adapt, spanning two generations, but I hope that I have managed to instil all the passion and wildness of Emily Brontë’s masterpiece and that people fall for Catherine and Heathcliff just as I have.”

Director Rebecca Gadsby added: “Your heart will be in your mouth for two hours!

“Jane Austen is my love and passion, but having some dark melodrama to work on will be inspiring and very exciting.”
