Double ABR Announcement at the National Theatre
We are delighted to share that the National Theatre's latest season announcement features two of our clients, Emma Rice and Emlyn Williams.
Emma Rice will be adapting Emily Brontë’s masterpiece Wuthering Heights in what will be a co-production with her company Wise Children, and York Theatre Royal, also touring to locations including Salford, Canterbury, York and Bristol.
Rice said: “I loved Wuthering Heights with a passion as a teenager. I thought it was a love story, a wild romance. I now find little love within its pages, but these multi-layered readings are what makes it such a fascinating story. My Wuthering Heights promises to be a revenge tragedy for our time - but it will also be about hope. I want to wrestle hatred to the earth and let a new story grow.”
Emlyn Williams' The Corn is Green will receive its first London revival in 35 years, with Nicola Walker (Last Tango In Halifax, Spooks, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) leading the cast. Directed by Dominic Cooke, it follows an English teacher fighting to bring education to a poverty-stricken mining community in 19th-century Wales.
