Dr Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he is 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, Suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde!
Combining ensemble storytelling, physical theatre, movement and Nick Lane’s razor-sharp script, alongside a new musical score by Tristan Parkes.
