Jekyll and Hyde - Lion and Unicorn Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
JEKYLL and Hyde, written by Adam Dechanel and based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, runs at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre from Tuesday, September 30 to Saturday, October 25, 2014.
A young lawyer visiting his Doctor friend at the London College of Tropical Diseases stumbles onto a series of horrifically dismembered corpses and takes it upon himself to hunt the killer.
As more students die and funding to the college is threatened, the race is on to solve the case before it’s too late.
When links between the dead and his friend Henry Jekyll arise, the mystery takes an even more sinister turn. Is Jekyll next on the killer’s list or is there something more horrifying to the mystery?
You may think you know the Robert Louis Stevenson classic but perhaps there is even more to this curious case than you know…
