Robert Louis Stevenson’s cult classic Jekyll and Hyde is reinterpreted in a modern adaptation for the stage.

A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is a high-profile cancer specialist, determined to find the chemical breakthrough that will solve mankind’s most challenging medical uncertainties.

Jekyll’s research results in the creation of an unintentional strain of drug which entirely alters the patient’s personality. Making himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, Jekyll accidentally unleashes his inner demon in the process: the infamous MrHyde.

When Jekyll’s closest friend begins to suspect that he is unwittingly tied up in the gruesome murders on the streets of London, Jekyll must choose between his scientific breakthrough, and the impending breakdown of his own existence.

Jekyll & Hyde, written by Jo Clifford, is at Mansfield’s Palace Theatre on February 24, at 7.30pm. Tickets £14.35 (full) and £12.81 (concession).
