“Specially adapted in a new version for schools touring, Jekyll & Hyde is a radical re-imagining by playwright Evan Placey of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale, directed by Kirsty Housley. In a mash up of Victorian England and the modern day, this story explores how the repression of female voices is as prevalent in the 19th century as it is today.

The story centres around two new protagonists—Hattie, Jekyll’s widow, and Flossie, a young blogger in the 21st century. As we see these new narratives unfold, the audience are confronted by the power the internet holds to the unleash our own inner Hydes.”

“Benjamin Grant’s omnipresent, ominous sound design helps wrap the audience in the nail-biting experience of a flight gone wrong”
Holly Williams, The Stage
