Heathcliffe - Wuthering Heights at Frankston Arts Centre

Wuthering Heights is the only published novel by English novelist and poet Emily Brontė. Despite being originally published in 1847, Brontė's controversial tale remains a classic in English literature and has inspired musical artists such as Kate Bush and Genesis. Brontė's story has been adapted to multiple TV and movie performances as well as on-stage plays.
