Blackeyed Theatre, in association with South Hill Park, presents

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!

Exclusive offer for schools: For bookings of 25 or more, online access to an HD recording of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is included in the cost of your booking. Contact the theatre/box office for more details. A free education pack is also available.
