The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

5th May 2023 @ 7:30 pm 8:45 pm

£12.00 – £14.00

A compelling solo show based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella – adapted and performed by Mark Stratford.

In this faithful adaptation Stevenson’s gripping narrative is brought vividly to life through a combination of powerful story-telling and masterful character creation. 

Gabriel John Utterson is Henry Jekyll’s lawyer and most trusted friend. Deeply concerned by a strange clause in his friend’s will, Utterson feels compelled to investigate the sinister Edward Hyde – Jekyll’s unlikely protégé.

Convinced that Jekyll and Hyde’s relationship is founded on blackmail, Utterson embarks on a quest to learn more, but – as
he does so – he finds the truth to be far worse than he could have ever imagined.

Set in Victorian London, in a large meeting room at Scotland Yard, Utterson and Inspector Newcomen recount for a select
audience the climactic events that unfolded at Jekyll’s house the night before and, in so doing, explain the strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde…

★★★★★ “A wonderful theatrical experience” (Herts Advertiser)

★★★★ “Stratford’s stellar performance carries the play” (The Reviews Hub, Brighton Fringe)

★★★★ “As the story unfolds, we begin to see moments of Mr Hyde, and from here on in we are well and truly hooked” (Views from the Gods, Camden Fringe)

★★★★ “One man shows, done well, are absorbing and showcase  actors at the top of their game; if not they risk being entertaining for the wrong reasons. Thankfully, Stratford’s performance is so good it belongs in the former category…a faithful and well-acted version of a classic which retains a relevance to the modern day” (Remote Goat, Camden Fringe)

“Stratford is a master in the art of creating characters…This faithful interpretation should prove attractive to aficionados of the genre and newcomers alike.” (Broadway Baby, Brighton Fringe)

Duration = 70 minutes (no interval)

Suitable for ages 11+
