New adaptation takes classic story outdoors
THE Lincoln-based Chapterhouse Theatre Company specialises in outdoor performances in the grounds of historic buildings and country houses, and has toured the UK and Ireland for the past 14 years.
It arrives in Scotland next weekend with its adaptation of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights by Laura Turner.
The performance is at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry, on Sunday July 13 at 7pm and tickets are £14 for adults, £10 for children and £42 for families (two of each).
Patrons are advised to bring their own seating.
The company has six shows on the road this year and returns to Hopetoun on Saturday August 9 with Turner's version of The Jungle Book.
