Wuthering Heights in London - last chance!
Tamasha's opulent Indian take on Emily Brontë's classic novel Wuthering Heights has been whipping up a storm of comment and debate. This week, it comes to the end of its run at the Lyric Hammersmith, but you can still catch it before it closes on Saturday 23 May - call 0871 22 117 28 or visit the Lyric's website.

"Deeply romantic and theatrically vivid, this is an utterly captivating evening"

Daily Express

"Delivers the story with a style and dauntlessness that Brontë herself would surely have admired"
The Scotsman

"A stunning take on Wuthering Heights... the show looks gorgeous"
The Sunday Times (Scotland)

"An imaginative perspective on a great classic"
The Independent
