Look back on Wuthering Heights behind the scenes

In Spring 2023, to accompany Inspector Sands’ production of Wuthering Heights, we designed a rich online education pack to support the GCSE & A Level Drama and A Level English Lit curricula.

Our education packs included filmed rehearsal footage and interviews with the cast and creative team. The videos below are part of our free English and Drama education packs aimed at students 14+ which are available to download below.
