Co-produced with the National Theatre, Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal, the Wise Children show follows the fractious relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy (Lucy McCormick).

The piece has set and costume design by Vicki Mortimer, sound and video by Simon Baker, composition by Ian Ross, lighting design by Jai Morjaria and movement and choreography by Etta Murfitt.

Currently at the National Theatre until 18 March, the show will then visit Cornwall, Norwich, Nottingham, Salford, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Inverness.
