A reworked classic makes an appearance at SHP

February 15, 2015

Theatre company Sell A Door is delighted to announce a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, which South Hill Park welcomes to its Wilde stage on Wednesday 18 – Friday 20 March as part of a 33 date UK Tour. Sell A Door was last seen at South Hill Park in June 2014 with the smash hit, Avenue Q.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s cult classic is reinterpreted in this modern adaptation, set in a steampunk dystopian world where the questionable actions of leaders are no longer held to account, whilst the personal freedoms of the common citizen are disregarded. A vivid depiction of a regressive future, this bold new adaptation is written by Jo Clifford and presented by multi award-winning touring company Sell A Door.

Set in an alternative London of the future that is consumed by the quest for immortality, Dr. Henry Jekyll is a high-profile cancer specialist, determined to find a cure for mankind’s greatest medical challenge. In his obsession to be the doctor that makes this historic breakthrough, Jekyll’s radical research results in the creation of an unintentional strain of drug which entirely alters the patient’s personality.

Making himself the subject of his own experiments, Jekyll steps into the unknown and unleashes his inner demons. Trapped in a corporate world, Dr. Jekyll must choose to keep hold of his own identity as he revels in the freedom and chaos of his hideous alter ego: Mr Hyde. But is the choice still in his hands?

Jo Clifford has close to 80 dramatic works to her name, and is perhaps best known for her adaptation of Great Expectations, which was first presented in 1988 featuring Alan Cumming as Pip, and was recently revived in a new production at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre. Jo is currently under commission to the National Theatre of Scotland.

[vc_testimonial author=”Jo Clifford” company=””] It’s such a brilliant piece of writing. It’s given me so much pleasure to adapt the story for Sell A Door; and I hope my play gives audiences huge pleasure, as well as plenty to think about. [/vc_testimonial]
