The Tenants of Wuthering Eyre’ is humorous, supernatural thriller is set on the present day North Yorkshire Moors.

The season is turning, the nights are drawing in.

Three sisters ‘role-play’ the Brontës’ famous novels, unaware that an old magic has been released.

Before the night is over, death will stalk the moors and long forgotten secrets will be revealed.

Co-writer and director Alison Watt said, “Laura, Hannah and Megan are three sisters who live at Wuthering Eyre, a moor side farmhouse whose name is inspired by their love of the Brontë sisters. “But there is danger on the moors - from this Gothic landscape come old friends and new threats.
