JEKYLL & HYDE
10 June, 2021
Wicked, dark and hilariously brilliant!
On arrival, we were greeted like good friends who had arrived at a fabulous party by five outrageous, French-accented performers.
As soon as the show started, we realised that the audience had become part of the show.
The production was an extremely organic mix of storytelling, audience participation and crazy, chaotic, black comedy that left my jaw sore from laughing.
What a ridiculously hilarious take on the age-old story by Robert Louis Stevenson about a man who is by day the well-respected Dr Jekyll, but at night turns into his alter ego Mr Hyde.
This is no traditional Jekyll and Hyde, but instead, a fast-paced, laugh-a-minute, interactive storytelling that serves up comedy and frivolity on a platter.
All five performers take turns at playing the main character with each adding their own wonderfully funny spin on it.
Brilliant physical theatre, wonderful props and some pimped-up pop songs sung with incredible voices.
Despite all the fun and chaos, this is one sophistically put together piece of theatre, that is so witty, sassy, sexy and dark.
Fantastic show. I absolutely loved it and didn’t want it to end.
When it did the darkness came upon me…….but I had to ‘push it down’.
