Take a dramatic step back in time at The Roses
By David Wood
Where: Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury
When: June 16, June 26 and July 3, 7.30pm
This summer, Chapterhouse Theatre Company is delighted to be celebrating its 20th anniversary of bringing classical theatre to great venues by bringing three productions to the Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury.
The company will perform Pride and Prejudice on Sunday, June 16; Wuthering Heights on Wednesday, June 26, and Cranford on Wednesday, July 3, all starting at 7.30pm.
With Pride and Prejudice, take a step back in time to meet Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Austen's notorious heroine. When Elizabeth meets the terse and abrupt Mr Darcy, she loathes him at first sight. But is there more to him than meets the eye? Brought to life by award-winning writer Laura Turner, this adaptation has been a favourite of Chapterhouse audiences for years.
Wuthering Heights is Emily Bronte's wild and tempestuous love story, set on the beautiful and mysterious Yorkshire moors. This tale of passion and revenge has thrilled readers and audiences alike for generations. Can Catherine and Heathcliff's love endure, or will the forces of nature tear them apart?
Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford also takes audiences back in time to the world of small-town life in Victorian England. In the sleepy village of Cranford, a mysterious new arrival is setting hearts aflutter... But can lost loves and old friendships withstand the drama of snobbery, gossip, and social scandal?
