Bring a chair!
A vibrant new adaptation of Emily Brontë’s elemental masterpiece…
Upon the brooding heath, unbound by the judgement of society, a wild and intoxicating obsession torments the moor. Be witness to a passion that goes beyond the grave.
Accompanied by beautifully haunting original live music and uplifting songs to support this whirlwind of a story, this tempest of the heart.
Developed with support from Lighthouse, Poole.
Dramatised and Directed by Charmaine K
Our guide to getting the best out of your time outdoors
Come prepared! – Bring whatever you need for a cosy afternoon. Sun shades, sun cream, hats, warm woollies, blankets, waterproofs, face mask, a waterproof lap cover (either a sheet of paper or a bin bag work well), and insect spray!
Bring your own seat – Low backed chairs, rugs and a cushion are always nice. Combine comfort and style! Please make sure that any chairs and/or umbrellas will not obscure anyone else’s view.
Gather a posse – Bring friends and family (family tickets are available). The more the merrier for a fun day or night out!
Arrive Early – Pick a great spot and enjoy the atmospheric surroundings. There is plenty of room to run about at Maumbury Rings.
Bring a Torch – It’s very helpful to safely find your way back to the car for evening performances.
Bring a Picnic – Refreshments are also available from an hour before the performance. Note that the refreshment stand is cash only.
