Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde


Adapted by Ryan Philpott
Directed by Eric Richard
Music by Paul Higgs

1888. Victorian London is under attack.

Within the thick Fitzrovia fog and dimly lamp-lit streets lurks an evil predator.

Unprovoked, a young child is attacked and beaten by a mystery man.

Who is this "sneering Satan"?

Meanwhile, obsessed with the "Good and evil duality of man" the upstanding Dr Henry Jekyll determines to prove his theories through dangerous experimentation.

"Supernatural, transcendental balderdash!" exclaims his long-time sparring partner and traditional man of science, Dr Hastie Lanyon.

When their mutual friend Gabriel Utterson learns of the mysterious Mr Hyde, he commits his lawyer's logic to the proceedings.

Believing Hyde to be blackmailing Jekyll, he vows to bring Hyde to task and solve the mystery. But he must move quickly, before Hyde strikes again.

3 actors take on all the roles in DTC's exciting new stage adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Victorian gothic masterpiece.

DTC are touring UK theatres at various times across the year. For more info go to ‘We are at a theatre near you’.
