AquilaTheatre Company will present Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” on Friday, November 14, at 8 p.m. in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.
“Wuthering Heights” recounts the tale of ill-fated lovers on the lonely moors of northern England. Heathcliff and Catherine meet as children when Catherine’s father brings the abandoned boy home to live with them. The two grow up together, living freely on the moors while Heathcliff is tormented by Catherine’s brother. When Catherine’s parents die, her brother turns Heathcliff out, forcing him to live among the servants. Catherine marries and the crushed Heathcliff disappears. Years later, a wealthy Heathcliff returns, but is it too late for them?
Bringing its signature style and approach, Aquila re-imagines one of the most famous love stories ever told with this heart-wrenching new production.
