Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted and Directed by Nick Lane
Hull Truck Theatre presents
Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field, respected by his peers... and close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. But his methods are less than ethical.
When a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself - and something goes very wrong.
Or very right.
Suddenly Jekyll has a new 'friend', the brutal Edward Hyde, and he has willed his entire fortune to him. But what is Jekyll's true legacy?
Love, betrayal and murder combine in this chilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of good and evil.
We are excited to announce that The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is on National Tour from 12th September to 30th November 2012. Click here for full tour details.
