Photos from Peter McMaster’s Wuthering Heights

Niall Walker’s photos of Peter McMaster, Nick Anderson, Thom Scullion, Murray Wason and Chris Hall performing Wuthering Heights, an all-male reponse to Emily Bronte’s classic novel.

If you missed the performance at the Arches, you can:

Read Peter’s Q&A about the piece
Read a round up of the reviews
Catch it at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, from Wed 1st – Fri 3rd May
Just enjoy the photographs and wait for the high-quality footage to be made available online

We recommend a mixture of all four.

Photos from Kieran Hurley’s Rantin

With Kieran Hurley’s Rantin now over and the celebratory drinks consumed, it’s interesting to look at photographer Eoin Carey‘s original shots of the piece and let elements of the characters float back through your mind. Because the show presents a kind of tableau of living, ‘real-time’ characters – for example, we’re reminded that Miriam, a Palestinian wondering what she’s doing in such a cold, wet place as Glasgow, is on the no.44 trundling past Cottiers as we speak – it’s interesting to think of what they’d be doing now. Or, if we’re thinking in actual terms, how each character developed over the course of the run.

The reviews from The Herald, The Scotsman and Across the Arts are in: go to the Arches website to read all three. We’d love to know what you thought of the show – let us know in the comments box below.
