Emily Brontë's much-loved classic Wuthering Heights is the latest story to be celebrated and reimagined through the creative eyes of the Shake & Stir Theatre Co.

A love story soured by lust and obsession, Wuthering Heights follows the tale of street rat Heathcliff, who is brought into the care of the Earnshaws and forms an unbreakable bond with daughter Catherine as well as a loathing for her brother, Hindley. As Heathcliff grows more and more passionately obsessed with Cathy, he finds that Cathy is married to another man. Filled with rage and vengeance, Heathcliff desires nothing more than to enact justice upon anyone found to stand in the way of his happiness.

Shake & Stir's artistic director Nick Skubij says, "We love the challenge of adapting and presenting much loved classics on the stage, especially one as huge as Wuthering Heights. There is a lot of risk but we are used to that now and don't shy away from it." Previous well-received adaptations of Shake & Stir's include George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm, as well as Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts.
