Lifeline Theatre Presents Wuthering Heights


Lifeline Theatre's 28th Anniversary season is presenting classic works of literature on stage. The series, "Big Stories, Up Close" has opened with a captivating rendition of Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights."

Cathy and Heathcliff are an unlikely duo- Cathy coming from wealth and privilege, and Heathcliff from stables of the working class. The epic nature of their relationship is foreshadowed early on, as Cathy's nurse introduces the characters by name and the many troublesome relationships that tie them all together. Cameron Feagin plays Cathy's nurse, Nelly Dean, who subtley narrates the broken timeline of Cathy and Heathcliff's story. For unfamiliar viewers entering Bronte's world, the broken timelines would be confusing without the guidance of Feagan's character, and she succeeds at reigning in the rollercoaster plot.

The play opens with all characters joining together on stage with haunting chants to personify the moors of Yorkshire- a setting that creates the pulse of the love story that follows. This dramatization effectively mirrors the mystery of the Moors that fascinated Emily Bronte and motivated her tales.

Lifelife's presentation of Wuthering Heights, as adapted by Christina Calvit and directed by Elise Kauzlaric, is an inticing interpretation that takes a classic work of literature and breaks it down into an entertaining theatre production.

Wuthering Heights runs until October 31st on Lifeline Theatre's main stage.
