About the Show/Event
Information for The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde at Wyvern Theatre, Swindon (Play). Edinburgh, 1886; when the city's Old and New Towns are separated by more than just the North Bridge. In the New Town we meet the Jekyll family. Dr Jekyll longs for just one of his "radical" experiments to go right. Daughter Miriam longs for the right to attend University. Son William is never far from his needlework, and wife Jane never far from the bottle. While seemingly a world away in the Old Town a murky figure known as Hyde roams the moonlit streets. A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London's fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on. Treat your dark side!
