Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

Starring Phil Daniels

The Orchard Theatre, Dartford

Tue 13 - Sat 17 March | 2pm & 7.30pm

OT: Jekyll & Hyde
SHOW INFORMATION PRE-SHOW DINING PRICING

Adapted by David Edgar
Starring  PHIL DANIELS
 
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic horror story, this dramatic adaptation shows the transformation of the mild-mannered Dr Jekyll into the fiendish Mr Hyde. When Jekyll discovers a drug that can transform him, he becomes able to unleash the dark side of his nature onto the streets of Victorian London. But he soon discovers the price of his double life. 
 

For Edgar, Jekyll and Hyde taps into a very real sense of threat, and that the world out there is a very dangerous place. There's the question, too, of what we are like, because we continue not just to be frightened about suicide bombers, but about criminals, and about terrible acts of inexplicable violence."

The play is suitable for use either at Key Stage 3, or to support the study of the novel at Key Stage 4.
