STOURBRIDGE thespians are gearing up to bring Emily Bronte’s spellbinding love story Wuthering Heights to life.

The play, which is set on the windswept Yorkshire moors and follows the lives of star-crossed lovers Cathy and Heathcliffe, is being staged in the grounds of Himley Hall next week.

Seasoned amateur actors Karen Whittingham and David Claridge are set to play the ill-fated pair in the Stourbridge Theatre Company production, which will run from Wednesday July 11 to Saturday July 14.

Tickets for Wednesday to Friday shows cost £9 (£8 concessions) and Saturday tickets cost £10.

They are available from Dudley Council Plus in Castle Street, Dudley, on 01384 812812 or online at or from The French Deli in Coventry Street, Stourbridge.
