Jekyll and Hyde Transfers to Royal Lyceum Edinburgh
Our critically acclaimed 2022 production of Jekyll and Hyde will transfer to The Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh in January 2024
“Are those little voices in our heads our friends, or our enemies? What if they’re neither, what if they’re both?”
In this captivating and comic adaptation by Gary McNair, the classic story of Jekyll & Hyde is turned on its head, revealing the depths of one man’s psyche and the lengths we will go to hide our deepest secrets. What will happen to a curious mind as it’s left to its own devices?
Paul Stacey, Founding Artistic Director of Reading Rep Theatre, said, “It is wonderful news that our production of Jekyll and Hyde will have a new chapter at the Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh. It’s lovely to know that more people will be able to see this bold one woman adaptation which breathes new life into this classic. Being able to share the work of Reading
Rep with the rest of the country is a great step in helping shine a positive light on Reading and placing Reading on the map as a cultural powerhouse.”
The Reading Rep Theatre production of Gary McNair’s adaptation of Jekyll & Hyde, directed by Michael Fentiman (‘Amélie’, ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’), will transfer to Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum Theatre from 13– 27 January 2024.
