Wuthering Heights
Tanya Landman

Award-winning author Tanya Landman has now written more than 40 books for young people, but started out as an actress, puppeteer and storyteller. At last year's Fringe she premiered her first ever one-woman show Jane Eyre. She had such a marvellous time performing and got such a positive response from audiences that she's back for more in 2024.

Tanya Landman said, "I first read Wuthering Heights when I was fourteen and I remember being utterly blown away by it. Back then I thought Heathcliff was wildly romantic. Re-reading it years later my views about him are a bit different, but I still have massive sympathy for Cathy and the terrible predicament she finds herself in. Wuthering Heights has a famously unreliable narrator - Nelly Dean - who clearly dislikes Cathy and has no pity for her. I want to give Cathy's ghost the chance to tell her own story."

Tanya says this is an opportunity to share her enthusiasm with other Bronte fans. "I hope they'll enjoy a new take on Emily's masterpiece. And for those who haven't read it - it will introduce them to a brilliant, beautiful, breathtaking story!"
