Wuthering Heights @ Lyttelton Theatre...
Good points: Self-assured. Self-conscious. Self-aware.
Bad points: Over-acted. Over-baked. Over-long.
While the narration, personified moor and singing chorus worked hard to add extra meaning to the harsh landscape and sheer unhappiness of the story's doomed characters, the overly self-aware nature of the production distanced us the audience too far from their heartache and tragedy. It was all a bit too broad for me.
