A twisted tale of nerve-jangling horror, this adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic gothic thriller stars Phil Daniels as both Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
In a secret experiment, the upright and respectable Dr Henry Jekyll splits his personality into two, releasing the fiendish and murderous Edward Hyde.
As Hyde brings about mayhem, terror and death in foggy London, can Jekyll find a way to suppress his monstrous alter-ego, before it takes him over for good?

I was dubious about attending this performance after the mauling it received from critics when it opened at the Rose Theatre. I am pleased to say that my fears were unfounded. Yes, perhaps it started slowly and some dialogue was superfluous. The inclusion of female characters which were not in the original story, is of debatable value. Nevertheless, the main theme of the play follows Stevenson's book fairly well. There may have been missed opportunities when it came to theatrical spectacle, but overall, a decent effort.
