The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

by Nick Lane
Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field, respected by his peers, and close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever... but his methods are less than ethical.

When a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself – and something goes very wrong.
Or very right.

Suddenly Jekyll has a new ‘friend’, the brutal Edward Hyde, and he has willed his entire fortune to him. But what is Jekyll’s true legacy?

Love, betrayal and murder combine in this chilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of good and evil.

From the author of My Favourite Summer & Housebound.

"A writer who knows what he's doing." The Guardian

Commissioned by Hull Truck Theatre, A Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde was taken a huge national tour throughout Autumn 2012
