The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted for the stage by Nick Lane

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong…or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde.

A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on...treat your dark side!

Reviews

“A finely-crafted adaptation that will keep you fastened to your seat” - British Theatre Guide

“A genuinely fresh take on a well-known story” - British Theatre Guide

“Lane explores the scientific ideas of the day and the development of neuroscience without it feeling like a foundation lecture in 'A' level psychology” - The Independent

“Through adding in an uncomfortable love triangle…Lane has focused on the real horror lurking underneath this Victorian story; that of the warping effect of repressed sexuality. It is a masterstroke that has been given room to breathe in this new adaptation…a thrillingly dark drama” - The Stage

“One of the most innovative, audacious companies working in contemporary English Theatre” - The Stage
