Robert Louis Stevenson
Edinburgh. 19th Century. A world of shadows and invisible women.
Henry Jekyll returns to to 'Auld Reekie' a respectable physician. At first, his good friend and lawyer Utterson is delighted with the news. However, on reuniting with the doctor, Utterson can't help but suspect that something is amiss in the Jekyll house.
The doctor's health is deteriorating, his former recklessness replaced by religious zeal. What secret knowledge is the butler hiding, and who is this mysterious and unpleasant new lab assistant, Mr Hyde?
Hyde was Thunder Road's first production and tackled Stevenson's strange case with innovative plot twists and high energy. The show received sell out success, critical acclaim and was nominated for two awards (Buxton Fringe, Manchester Theatre Awards) and, thanks to the huge support of Kevin Jamieson and Emma McDowell - an association with Harrogate Theatre was born.
