A Touring Consortium Theatre Company and Rose Theatre Kingston co-production


Phil Daniels (Les Miserables, This House, EastEnders) stars in this extraordinary tale, based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic thriller, of one man's transformation from the mild-mannered Dr Jekyll into the fiendish Mr Hyde.

During one of his audacious experiments trying to separate good from evil in human nature, the kind and gifted Dr Jekyll inadvertently unleashes an alternative personality of pure evil...the mysterious Mr Hyde. As this sinister and ominous figure starts causing havoc around the foggy streets of London, the physician's friends and sister grow increasingly worried about him. Jekyll must race to find a cure for his monstrous alter-ego before it takes over for good.

For playwright David Edgar, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde taps into a very real sense of threat, and the fact that the world out there is a very dangerous place. There's the question, too, of what we are all like in this exploration of the duality of human nature.

Directed by Stephen Unwin, designed by Simon Higlett and adapted by Tony award-winning playwright David Edgar.
