Everyone has another face they hide behind...

A radical re-imagining by playwright Evan Placey of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale, where civilised society meets seedy Soho in a thrilling collision of Victorian England with the here and now.

Written for the National Youth Theatre, and first performed by the company at the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End in 2017, Jekyll & Hyde offers a full range of parts for schools and youth-theatre groups looking for a contemporary reinvention of a macabre classic.

Evan Placey's other plays include Consensual, Pronoun, Girls Like That (Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers Guild of Great Britain Awards), Mother of Him, Banana Boys and Holloway Jones.

Review:
Incendiary... a furious, whip-smart and - that rare thing - genuinely dangerous theatrical riposte to the men who have had their hands on the levers of power for far too long... With echoes of Frank Wedekind, Martin McDonagh and Black Mirror, it offers no easy answers. But for even daring to entertain darkly radical remedies for injustice, this is thrilling stuff. --Guardian

Ambitious, angry, and intriguing, Evan Placey's radical adaptation transforms the familiar story into a discussion of powerfully resonant contemporary issues --The Stage

A topical. intelligent, thoughtful, feminist take on Robert Lewis Stevenson's novella... rollicking good theatre - frank, uncompromising, fresh and often quite confrontational... an ensemble piece in that it forms a fine show case for the talents of every cast member. --Sardines Magazine
