THE classic tale Wuthering Heights will be told at Skipton Town Hall and at the Rainhall Centre in Barnoldswick.

The production will be performed at 7.30pm tomorrow in Skipton Town Hall and at 7pm on Tuesday in the Rainhall Centre.

Hotbuckle Theatre Company will present its adaptation of the novel Wuthering Heights, which tells the story of the love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father.

Believing that Catherine does not love him, Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights, returning years later to seek revenge.

Danielle Daglan, programming and venue development manager at Craven District Council, which runs Skipton Town Hall, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Hotbuckle Theatre; they are experts in bringing classic literature to the stage. With live music, multiple characterisation, humour and inventiveness, this story really comes to life in their hands.”

A spokesman for Hotbuckle Theatre Company said: “We produce new writing and original work, but are best known for our adaptations of traditional, classic works of literature. We don't like to conform when we adapt these tales - we like to think we don't just do what people expect.

“Our style is distinctive - lightning fast costume changes, humour, but above all we strive to make whatever story we are telling as human as possible. Novels that may well have seemed impenetrable before will be unlocked and freed for an audience to enjoy.”
