Period Drama

When I first heard that term I thought it was about ‘ladies problems.’ No, really, you have to remember my English report stated, “Although Charles lacks intelligence and a certain amount of work ethic, he can be very cute.” I checked the dictionary for work ethic and it said someone who finds work immoral, my spelling wasn’t the best back then and after looking up ‘immoral’ it appeared I was going to be famous and remembered forever, so not a bad report overall. Anyway back to the plot. Last week we went to Castle Howard.

The Oxford Shakespeare Company (who were fabulous) were performing Wuthering Heights,Β  this was a small affair maybe 150 people in the Walled Garden what could be better on summers evening? If your not familiar with the tale basically a geezer called Heathcliffe falls in love with a girl called Cathy, she snuffs it and he sulks for about 20 years. Obviously there’s a bit more to it than that and in truth it’s a great Bronte tale and Kate Bush song, but as you know I don’t do reviews which in itself is a Godsend to the world of Art and culture. πŸ˜‰

    Been to Castle Howard. Lovely place. Do they still have peacocks roaming the grounds? Wuthering Heights – a great novel. Kate Bush’s version in song – a classic.( It was her song that led me to read the book. ) Sounds like it was a wonderful experience!

  2. Love your synopsis of “Wuthering Heights”, Charlie. I’d rather listen to that than the grating, screeching voice of Kate Bush, which always gave me the willies. Good review anyway!!! =D
