Two Hats on tour

Jane Thornton's adaptation of Wuthering Heights has been gathering popularity ever since it was first performed a few years ago by Hull Truck. It was on recently at the Theatre Royal in York, and now the Two Hats Company is touring it. Here is the official press release from Darren Scott:

Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same

A mysterious orphan who sets two families at odds. A conflict passed down across generations. And a love that lasts beyond death. Cathy and Heathcliff grow up on the remote Yorkshire moors, soulmates and fellow victims of Cathy's brother. But when a chance mistake sends Heathcliff away, Cathy marries the wrong man...

TWO FAMILIES. TWO SOULS. ONE LOVE TO DIE FOR.

Blanche McIntyre directs a cast featuring Two Hats regulars Chris Dobson, Emma Cooper and Nick Marshall and newcomers Matt Dudley and Krisha Harman to present an intimate evening of story-telling suitable for all ages.

Composer Darren Scott provides an evocative original score for this production, with costumes designed by Helen Brady.
