Dr Jekyll is a brilliant scientist who is frustrated by dull, respectable life in Victorian London. He has a theory – That inside every one of us lies the very worst of ourselves - greed, impulsion, violence, rage – a side that is suppressed and hidden, even from ourselves. Until, that is, Jekyll concocts a scientific formula to unleash his inner, bestial nature, transforming him into the devilish Mr Hyde…
Hyde continues to live the high life – acting on impulse, stirring up fear, while Jekyll’s façade of normalcy continues. Gradually, Jekyll starts to grow weaker as Hyde becomes stronger. Jekyll’s grip on reality starts to slide, and he begins to be consumed by the very monster he has created.
Can Dr Jekyll regain control of his scientific experiments before Hyde’s chaos begins to turn up a body count…?
This cleverly adapted version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella stays true to the science fiction classic, moving swiftly around Victorian London, and immersing the audience in the chilling twists of this psychological thriller.
