Returning for their fourth year following three sell-out productions of classics from the gothic horror genre (last year’s Frankenstein, The Turn of the Screw from 2017, and 2015’s Dracula), Bristol’s Red Rope Theatre return this month to the Anglican Chapel in Arnos Vale Cemetery with another darkly epic misadventure.
Adapted by award-winning writer Matt Grinter from Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 gothic novella, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a dark psychological thriller filled with repression, liberation, addiction and malice.
In an attempt to free his darker nature without suffering the consequences and remain the respectable man that society thinks he is, Dr Jekyll breaks through the laws of nature with devastating consequences.
This is a story of the human condition, of identity and of friendship. How far is one man willing to go to find his true self…?
