Description

This new musical by Michael Bascom retells the story of Heathcliff and Cathy, two soul-bound lovers thwarted by family, society and God. The sun shines over the moors, but a storm of vengeance is brewing in this story of a passionate romance which transcends life – and death – itself. Described as 'a highly moving production, brilliantly depicting the tragedy and passion of Bronte's novel' (TCS), the show sees its Fringe debut after premiering last November to a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the University of Cambridge.

An enjoyable, minimalist new take on the story with a slightly eerie atmosphere perfectly fit for the late hour. The leading lady as Cathy had a wonderful voice and Heathcliff's accent was much like that of Russell Tovey, which I love. The musical part was good enough (the drinking song was a highlight), but I do wish it could integrate more folk elements from that moorland to make the show more characteristic.
