    Press Review Sarah Wilkinson, The Stage, Friday 29 May 2009Performance 27-30 May 09

    ‘Although Marston’s Wuthering Heights contains some absolute gems of choreography, they would sparkle brighter if 30 minutes was shaved off the running time.’

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 29 May 2009Performance 27-30 May 09
