"I have to remind myself to breathe – almost to remind my heart to beat!" – Heathcliffe, Wuthering Heights... But it could have just as easily been said by our mum, Robyn.

Robyn has been through a lot: the child of a teenaged mother; the stand-in-mother for her teenaged siblings; and to top it all off, the survivor of an anaphylactic pulmonary arrest which gave her a brain injury and medical PTSD. Robyn is a survivor.

We are her children: Tessa and Julian. And for you, we have prepared a *tasteful* collage of what life is like in the four minutes when you die (and the stuff that follows when you wake up again).

Explored through puppetry, song, and dance; Muthering Heights is an earnest, dark, and silly bit of theatre.

Each show is a Relaxed Sensory Performance to be enjoyed by people (like our mum) who love theatre, but find it kinda hard getting to the theatre these days. (Plus everyone else who loves weird theatre!)
