The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

About The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

National Theatre of Scotland and Selkie Productions in association with Screen Scotland and Sky Arts present: The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - Live at Leith Theatre.

Enter a world of dark duplicity...

Within the century-old walls of historic Leith Theatre, something sinister is stirring. A gothic tale of double lives and inner demons, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde takes on its own hybrid identity in this unique retelling.

You, the audience, will step foot into a live filmset where you will witness the simultaneous creation and screening of this one-off experience. Be there as the drama unfolds on screen and in the historic rooms and hallways of Leith Theatre.

Dr Jekyll’s good friend Gabriel Utterson is driven to uncover the identity of the mysterious Mr. Hyde. He finds himself enthralled by the society of Edinburgh’s rich and powerful, but beneath the glossy façade lies the grim and brutal reality of the city’s streets.

‘Who is this man? Why have I never heard of him before? And what is he to you that you would entrust him with all this?’ Gabriel Utterson

Cast includes: Tam Dean Burn, Caroline Deyga, Lois Hagerty, David Hayman, Lorn MacDonald, Scott Miller, Henry Pettigrew, Alison Peebles, Peter Singh and Ali Watts

Age 15+

Tickets are free with a recommended donation of £20. You can choose your donation amount on checkout.
