Wuthering Heights gets a Bollywood makeover in Tamasha’s new touring production

Natalie Woolman

Classic novel Wuthering Heights has been transformed into a Bollywood show by British Asian theatre company Tamasha in collaboration with the Lyric Hammersmith and Oldham Coliseum Theatre.

Set in northern India, Emily Bronte’s characters Cathy and Heathcliff have become Shakuntala, a merchant’s daughter, and Krishan, an urchin, in the new production, which is being directed by Kristine Landon-Smith.

Actor and writer Deepak Verma has adapted Bronte’s book, with the story moved from the Yorkshire moors to the Indian plains.

Wuthering Heights opens on March 13 at Oldham Coliseum before embarking on a nationwide tour that finishes in Harrogate on June 20.
