Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, The Holden Kemble Theatre Company bring a chilling new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic horror - with a cut-throat razor-sharp modern edge.

Young physician Dr Henry Jekyll is desperate to make a name for himself, researching hazardous and revolutionary medicine. One dark night he appears at the office of his solicitor, Gabriel Utterson, demanding that his will be redrawn to exclude his devoted wife and to bequeath all his possessions and considerable inheritance to the notorious Edward Hyde, a violent and vicious villain.

Driven by dread-filled rumours and religious righteousness, the lawyer’s investigation soon becomes an obsession, as he finds his own moral surety under attack when faced with chilling scientific heresy, hot-blooded adultery and brutal murder.

Set against a backdrop of conflicted Victorian values, The Scandalous Case Of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is a thrilling visceral journey into the duality of one man's nature.

Warning: contains scenes of violence & strong language. Not suitable for children.
