It’s already been hailed a cracker - a multi award-winning actor/writer’s one-man-show version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is running right now at Harrogate Theatre.
Following the huge success of A Christmas Carol – As Told by Jacob Marley (Deceased) in 2010 and Fagin’s Last Hour in 2011, James Hyland is premiering his new show The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at Harrogate Studio Theatre, to this Saturday, July 20 July.
Hyland has a reputation for fearless, Berkovian characterisations, which lend his takes on classic literature a thrilling, chilling edge.
The co-production between Brother Wolf’s and Harrogate Theatre and Phil Lowe, who also directed the critically acclaimed production of Fagin’s Last Hour, takes a fresh approach to Stevenson’s classic timeless tale of civilisation versus savagery, good versus evil.
Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 bogey tale has become part of the language when talking about the duality of human nature and this new one-man-show from Brother Wolf pulls no punches in conveying all the horror of Stevenson’s novella.
Dr Jekyll is a renowned and respected scientist. When his controversial theory of duality is met with sneers and doubts from the Medical Academy, his determined attempts to prove his point unleash a powerful monster.
