Flat Packed Theatre present HYDE & SEEK
Using innovative lighting, chilling soundscapes and a whole host of other unconventional technical wizardry, HYDE and SEEK is an intimate and lavishly visual story-telling experience: ghostly figures are glimpsed briefly before vanishing, characters appear out of nowhere, and what you can't see becomes a lot more disconcerting than what you can.
Albert, an enigmatic former stage-doorman, weaves a grisly tale of the further misdeeds of Mr Hyde and his 'acquaintance'. the tormented genius Dr Jekyll. Set in a long-abandoned theatre in Victorian London, the theme of vaudeville runs through the show with darkly comic song, puppetry and even ventriloquism.
HYDE and SEEK is performed by Michael Tonkin-Jones, who also activates over 500 sound, lighting and music cues - no mean feat in a one-man show!
'... it's an absolute roller-coaster ride and a herculean endeavour for a single performer. Bravo!'
