Based on the novel by Emily Brontë
Adapted and directed by Emma Rice

The Yorkshire moors tell an epic story of love, revenge and redemption.

Rescued from the Liverpool docks as a child, Heathcliff is adopted by the Earnshaws and taken to live at Wuthering Heights. He finds a kindred spirit in Catherine Earnshaw and a fierce love ignites. When forced apart, a brutal chain of events is unleashed.

Shot through with music, dance, passion and hope, Emma Rice (Romantics Anonymous, Brief Encounter) transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a powerful and uniquely theatrical experience.

Lucy McCormick (Post Popular) and Ash Hunter (Hamilton) lead the company of performers and musicians in this intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time.

“I am Heathcliff! Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Adapted and directed by Emma Rice. Composer Ian Ross. Set and costume Vicki Mortimer. Sound and video Simon Baker. Lighting Jai Morjaria. Movement and Choreography Etta Murfitt.

Watching From Home - FAQs

IS IT REALLY LIVE?
Yes! These are real life LIVE BROADCASTS. We will be performing the show from Bristol Old Vic on 4, 5 and 6 November, so when you tune in to watch, you’ll be watching the live show – mistakes and all!

DO I HAVE TO START WATCHING AT 7.30PM/2PM?

Yes! The show is really being performed and broadcast live, so you have to start watching at the start time, or you will miss the beginning!
We also recommend you tune in half an hour early, to make sure the technology is working for you. If you have any problems setting it up, you will then have time to contact our team on 0117 317 8677 or here for help.

CAN I STOP AND START DURING THE BROADCAST?

No. The show is really being performed and broadcast live, so if you stop watching at any point, you will miss bits of the show. Unlike watching iPlayer, for example, you can’t stop and start our broadcasts.

HOW DO I BOOK A TICKET?

Select the day you want to watch from the buttons above.
Select the time and date of the show you’d like to watch, then choose the price you’d like to pay for your ticket (and select ‘1’ ticket from the dropdown menu) and then click PLACE YOUR ORDER.
Following the payment process after that, and you will receive a confirmation email and text message with details on how to watch the show. Remember: the shows are really live, so if you’re booking in advance all you’ll see for now is a clock counting down to the start of the show.

HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS?

Early Bird tickets are on sale now for £15. From Mon 1 Nov, tickets go up to £20.
We’ve also included a £50 Pay It Forward ticket which supports us in making Wuthering Heights more widely available, helping more people experience the delight of watching a live broadcast.
You only need one ticket per screen, but please note, tickets cannot be shared: you can only use them on one ‘device’ (for example a TV or computer).

WHAT IS A MULTIPLE VIEWER TICKET?

You only need one ticket per screen, so your whole household could watch the show together with just one Single Viewer ticket.
However, if you love theatre and are feeling extra supportive, we hope you will consider buying a Multiple Viewer ticket, which is (not quite) twice the price of a Single Viewer ticket.
Please note: like the Single Viewer ticket, a Multiple Viewer ticket can cannot be shared and can only be used on one ‘device’ (for example a TV or computer).

IS THE BROADCAST HIGH QUALITY?

Yes! This is not a scratchy archive recording, or a low-fi zoom broadcast. Our experienced team are filming and streaming in HD, with 6 cameras used to capture the show.

CAN I WATCH FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD?

Yes. The show is available wherever you are – but please note that the times are listed in UK local time, so, if you’re not in the UK, make sure you’re clear on the time difference so you don’t miss anything.

CAN I SHARE THE LINK WITH OTHER PEOPLE?

No. When you buy a ticket, you will be sent a unique link to watch the show which can be used on one device (phone, computer or TV) only. If you share it with someone else and they start watching before you, you won’t be able to watch!

WILL THE BROADCAST BE CAPTIONED OR AUDIO DESCRIBED?

Our technology doesn’t (yet) allow us to caption or audio-describe the live broadcasts, but we will be making captioned and audio-described recordings available. You will be able to buy a ticket for these soon and they will be available from 26–28 Nov.
