Theatre: The Strange Case of Jekyll and Hyde

Venue: 
Grand Theatre, Lancaster LA1 1NL

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!

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