Spring Production 2017-Angles Theatre, Wisbech. 28th March to 1st April
Jeykll and Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson adapted by
Leonard H Caddy
In this retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson's famous story, Dr Jeykll is introduced just as he is on the brink of dicovering the key to man's inner reality. One evening he experiments on himself and finds his formula works. Unfortunately, his 'real' self turns out to be the monster Edward Hyde. Jeykll continues his researched, spending more and more time as Hyde until this horrifying character takes ovver. Jeykll's fiance and friends slowly become aware of the changes in him but are powerless to help. Jeykll himself finds it more and more difficult to keep Hyde at bay, and his initial delight soon turns to despair. When Hyde brutally murders one of the maids,, he realises his experiment has gone too far, and he takes the only course of action left to him.
