Jekyll and Hyde back at the New Theatre

November 4, 2021 by

The New Theatre, Cardiff’s autumn season continues with the return of Blackeyed Theatre with the The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Following being filmed and streamed in 2020, this  adaptation by Nick Lane of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy immerses audiences in the myth and mystery of 19th century London.

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man, successful within his field and respected by his peers. When he gets close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever, a colleague threatens to expose his controversial methods and Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself. When his experiment goes wrong, Jekyll suddenly has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde.

Combining ensemble storytelling, physical theatre, movement and Lane’s razor-sharp script, alongside a musical score by Tristan Parkes, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde remains true to the spirit and themes of the original score.

This classic Gothic tale will be performed by Blake Kubena in the titular roles.
