Jekyll And Hyde

September 27 - December 6, 2018

Ambitious, angry, and intriguing, Evan Placey's radical adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde for National Youth Theatre transforms the familiar story into a discussion of powerfully resonant contemporary issues.

A Radical Retelling of the Gothic Classic

Robert Louis Stevenson's Gothic masterpiece Jekyll and Hyde has not only been adapted but radically reimagined in Evan Placey's exciting new production at the National Youth Theatre. Helmed by James Menzies-Kitchen Secrets Award-winning director and West End rising star Roy Alexander Weise, dishonesty and revenge are the dishes of the day in this thrilling new production!

Surprised by the lack of women characters in the original, Placey focuses his story on a previously unseen character - Hattie, the bereaved wife of the newly deceased Dr. Jekyll, also shining a light on the repression of the Victorian woman and women today. In this new retelling, women take the reigns and the split personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde symbolise the divide between our own on screen and real life personas - begging questions about personal responsibility and culpability of words and the actions they inspire.
