'We don’t in general take to foreigners here… unless they take to us first'

With characteristic humour, passion and pathos, Inspector Sands offer a fresh take on the infamous love story of doomed heroes Catherine and Heathcliff, with its devastating impact across several generations.

Channelling Emily Brontë’s piercing wit and intense emotion, the classic novel is thrown into sharp contemporary focus, exploring the way violence generates violence and the relationship between social alienation and radical behaviour.

Wuthering Heights will contain violence, peril, social awkwardness, exhilarating music, high winds and mud.
