“If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also"
Dr Jekyll is well respected but when they make a momentous scientific discovery, it spins them into a double life in which inner demons threaten to take control.
In the streets of Victorian London, respectability is mixed with murder. As their two identities begin to blur, we are invited to delve into what makes the person tick. Why do the bystanders choose to let them get out of control, as they battle to defeat the monstrous alter-ego inside?
Jekyll & Hyde is adapted by Neil Bartlett and will be directed by Derby Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Brigham. The cast and the rest of the creative team will be announced soon.
"A dark and chillingly atmospheric adaptation from Neil Bartlett, Sarah Brigham and a fine ensemble cast"
