Jekyll and Hyde will arrive at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch from October 26 – November 12.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s iconic tale will be brought vividly to life through Neil Bartlett’s extraordinary adaptation and a stellar cast led by Nicholas Shaw in the titular roles.

Jekyll and Hyde is the latest collaboration between Derby Theatre and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, following on from previous co-produced successes.

Dr Jekyll is well respected but when a momentous scientific discovery is made, it spins into a double life in which inner demons threaten to take control.

In the streets of Victorian London, respectability is mixed with murder as two identities begin to blur.

This new adaptation by Neil Bartlett gives audiences everything they expect from this well-known story, but also introduces three new female characters. It is these three women who drag the violence and secrecy of Hyde out from the shadows and into the light.
