Jeyll & Hyde at Buxton Opera House from August 15 to 17.

Everyone has a monster within. Dr Henry Jekyll believes that there are two distinct sides to men – one good, one evil. Intent on separating the two, he succeeds in his experiments.

However, in doing so he unleashes Hyde, a monstrous and uncontrollable alter ego.

The production, running from August 15 to 19, is part of a Talking Scarlet residency, which will also bring to stage a production of Death Toll (August 11 to 13), set in the desolate ex-hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands.
