Synopsis

Everyone has another face they hide behind…

A radical re-imagining by playwright Evan Placey of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale, where civilised society meets seedy Soho in a thrilling collision of Victorian England with the here and now.

Written for the National Youth Theatre, and first performed by the company at the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End in 2017, Jekyll & Hyde offers a full range of parts for schools and youth-theatre groups looking for a contemporary reinvention of a macabre classic.

'Intense, exciting... a bold reimagining' - WhatsOnStage

'Ambitious, angry, and intriguing, Evan Placey’s radical adaptation transforms the familiar story into a discussion of powerfully resonant contemporary issues' - The Stage

'A topical.

intelligent, thoughtful, feminist take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella... rollicking good theatre – frank, uncompromising, fresh and often quite confrontational… an ensemble piece in that it forms a fine show case for the talents of every cast member' - Sardines Magazine
