Castle Kennedy Gardens - Open Air Theatre

Year of Natural Scotland 2014

Friday 8 August 7:00pm (grounds open for picnics from 6:00pm)

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is proud to present Emily Bronte's classic love story set in the beautiful, mysterious wilderness of the Yorkshire moors..

This treasured story of enduring love and passion has thrilled and entranced generations. It is now brought alive on stage in an adaptation by award winning writer Laura Turner and has been presented at some of the most beautiful open-air venues across the UK and Ireland. Can Catherine and Heathcliff's everlasting love bring happiness or will the very forces of nature and the moors tear them apart?

Join Chapterhouse Theatre Company with your family for an evening of unforgettable theatre under the stars against the dramatic back-drop of Castle Kennedy ruins.

Marquee provided if weather unfavourable. Tea Room open for refreshments and light snacks. Picnics are welcome. Low back chairs, rungs and insect repellant recommended.
