Jekyll & Hyde
1886. A malevolent creature prowls the fog-shrouded streets of Victorian London. Only two men know its true identity; one of them is dead, the other is in a race against time to discover the awful truth of what he has witnessed and to stay alive…
“I knew myself, at the first breath of this new life, to be more wicked, tenfold more wicked… and the thought, in that moment, braced and delighted me like wine.”
Robert Louis Stevenson’s Victorian gothic masterpiece has fascinated readers and audiences for over 130 years.
The riveting novella explores the respectable Dr Jekyll’s association with a mysterious and violent man called Edward Hyde. Through the eyes of Jekyll’s friend Utterson, we learn of the diabolical experiment Jekyll has carried out and are brought face to face with humanity’s basest capacity for evil.
Now GSC invite you to experience Stevenson’s gripping tale in a captivating stage adaptation which places a single actor centre stage.
Written by Caroline Devlin (Henry V OnComm Awards 2022) who has revisited her adaptation especially for GSC and the evocative setting of St Nicolas’ Church, and directed by Marieke Audsley (Associate Director, RSC), this promises to be an unmissable theatrical event.
