TWO SIDES TO STRANGE STORY; Classic Robert Louis Stevenson tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde comes to Venue Cymru.

Published in 1886, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has established itself as an enduring tale and now Blackeyed Theatre, in association with South Hill Park, present the theatre adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy thriller.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was an immediate success and the first stage adaptation took place within a year of publication. There are over 100 film versions, a musical stage version, radio and stage plays and songs in numerous languages.

The novel continues to fascinate modern audiences with the combination of good and evil nature engrossing readers since the book's publication 131 years ago.

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he is close to a neurological discovery that will change medical science forever.

However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde.
