Phil Daniels will lead the company in the titular roles of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham.
The touring production can be seen from March 20-24 and is adapted by David Edgar.
A twisted tale of nerve-jangling horror, this adaptation is directed by Kate Saxon.
In a secret experiment, the upright and respectable Dr Henry Jekyll splits his personality into two, releasing the fiendish and murderous Edward Hyde.
As Hyde brings about mayhem, terror and death in foggy London, can Jekyll find a way to suppress his monstrous alter ego, before it takes him over for good?
David Edgar is a Tony Award-winning playwright for stage, radio, television and film. For the National Theatre, he wrote Entertaining Strangers (starring Tim Pigott-Smith and Judi Dench), The Shape of the Table, Albert Speer and Playing with Fire.
