Four performers explode their own experiences of being men in this bold theatrical debut from ‘one of Scotland’s most interesting young theatre makers’ (The Scotsman).
They recall the dark expanses of the Yorkshire moors, sing together full-throated and bold, recall poignant memorials of being a boy, and dance optimistically to the howling tones of Kate Bush.
McMaster’s all male, award-winning interpretation of Emily Bronte’s seminal text, re-visits the iconic landscapes and characters from Wuthering Heights and places them alongside the stories of the male performers. This re-imagined classic considers how, almost 200 years after the book was published, the lives and aspirations of men are now different.
