Brontë goes to Bollywood Tamasha

Wuthering Heights premieres at the Coliseum Theatre in Oldham this week
Tamasha's much-anticipated musical adaptation of Wuthering Heights is finally here. For the next 15 weeks, we will be transporting Emily Brontë's tale of passion, jealousy and revenge from the Yorkshire moors to the deserts of Rajasthan in this memorable staging of the nation's favourite love story.

A sandstorm of romance, melodrama and captivating music, Wuthering Heights fuses an Indian cinematic aesthetic with West End influences to create a vibrant show that will charm both literary fans and Bollywood enthusiasts.
