What happens when you transfer Wuthering Heights to the lowlands around Barcelona?

Enter Terra Baixa: an iconic Catalonian play written by the equally iconic Àngel Guimerà. Many a director and filmmaker have set to work in the past with this universal love story. And now it has landed in the magical hands of Carme Portaceli, known for her ground-breaking adaptations of Mrs. Dalloway and Bovary with Michael De Cock at KVS.
 
Terra Baixa presents the story of Marta, a poor girl from Barcelona, who becomes the mistress of Sebastià – the most important landowner of the Catalonian lowlands. Sebastià needs to marry a woman of standing to secure his lands and his inheritance. To suppress rumours of his relationship with Marta, he makes her marry the completely unsuspecting Manelic, a youthful shepherd from the Pyrenees. He houses the young couple in the miller’s house in the city. Marta soon becomes torn between her long-standing, dominant lover and her new, caring husband.
