Nick Lane’s adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic explores the relationship of a respectable London lawyer, Gabriel Utterson, who is compelled to uncover the strange connection between his old friend, the brilliant scientist Dr Henry Jekyll, and a brooding and dangerous stranger called Edward Hyde.
All who lay eyes on Hyde experience a strange and chilling fear and foreboding and his reputation is that of a vile and violent individual. As Utterson investigates further, he uncovers a truly horrifying story of deception.
