NYT: Jekyll and Hyde
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has long captured the fears and imaginations of its readers. It is a Victorian detective story that, among other topics, explores the duality and complexity of man in his societal trappings. So it is a refreshing and surprising twist to find The National Youth Theatre REP Company presents a new interpretation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic, that reimagines the central character as a woman, Harriet Jekyll. Written by Evan Placey (Consensual, Girls Like That) and directed by Roy Alexander Weise (Mountaintop, JMK 2016 winner) this radical adaptation works to give voice to the unheard stories of the women of the Victorian era, and the silenced characters that linger on the outskirts of the novella’s narrative.
