JAMES HYLAND IS BACK! and I know I'm far too excited about this! I absolutely loved his solo performance of Fagin's Last Hour in 2012 so I've been keeping an eye out for his next project. I thought it might be another Dickens adaptation but instead he has set his sights on the classic horror of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Adapted from the original novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde will be performed by James Hyland and directed by Phil Lowe with music composed by Chris Warner. The show lasts for one hour and I hope that there might also be a Q and A session afterwards as is was fascinating last time to hear about the work that went into creating Fagin's Last Hour. it is recommended for audiences aged 12 and over.
During his final lecture on the duality of man, the respectable Dr Jekyll reveals his strange association with the mysterious Edward Hyde and the shocking truth about his identity: that Hyde, unlike other human beings, is not only fundamentally evil, but also the very definition of it.
Under Ground Theatre, Fri 6th Sep, 19:30.
