Jekyll & Hyde - Chickenshed Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

CHICKENSHED is presenting Jekyll & Hyde from Tuesday, September 25 to Saturday, October 20, 2018.

All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil.

A fearless and innovative new production of this utterly iconic story is boldly told with music, movement and a youthful vigour that honours the breathless and remorseless pace of the original novella.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson was first published in 1886, and depicts the constant struggle between the baser instincts and finer aspirations of mankind, offering a terrifying glimpse of what lurks beneath the surface when the persuasive but superficial trappings of civilisation are stripped away.

Brilliantly exploring Stevenson’s themes of etiquette, respectability and hypocrisy, this production will explore the dark recesses of the psyche, and reflect the tale’s profound and subtle truths about what it means to be human – and how fragile the veneers of society may be.

Jekyll & Hyde is suitable for ages 15+ years.
