Why not book your seat on the roller coaster ride that is ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’?

With inventive high Gothic sets, film-like underscoring, and costume and makeup effects, this should be one hell of a ride.

Originally written for three people, the casting for this production has been extended for dramatic purposes. Indeed the script itself, is highly dramatic and an absolute gift for actors.
