The set was stark, and we already had a sense of the world at Wuthering Heights and the Yorkshire Moors. The sound of eery birdsong as the audience assembled, added to that, along with the misty lighting. The scene was definitely set.
The action took place on both levels of the set, the main level, mostly Wuthering Heights itself, on the stage, and some of the action taking place on a constructed balcony. The Moors and Thrushcross Grange, all effortlessly portrayed, in this single set, with the use of lighting, sound effects and a sliding ladder. At the centre of all of this, the farmhouse kitchen table, mostly the domain of housekeeper Nelly.
This cast of just 6, worked fantastically together. Aside from Giulia Innocenti as Nelly (Ellen) Dean, they all played multiple characters, and all played those characters at different ages, showing huge depth and abilities. It was a true ensemble cast, without a weak link. Well done to all of the cast of Leander Deeny, John Askew, Giulia Innocenti, Lua Bairstow, Ike Bennett, Nicole Sawyer and also to director Lucinka Eisler and writer Ben Lewis, who both devised and produced this.
