Sinister, chilling and macabre, Jekyll and Hyde is the ultimate story of good versus evil. Set in London, and based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Victorian novella, it is the story of Dr Henry Jekyll, a brilliant and yet troubled scientist, and his obsession with the darkest recesses of the human condition.

Morphic Graffiti’s production, staged at the renowned Union Theatre, Southwark, promises to uncover the grit and depravity of Stevenson’s vision. The results will be a thrilling and, at times, terrifying ordeal.

Playing the role of Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde will be leading man Tim Rogers, star of the West End and Australian stage. His UK credits include The Man in Whistle Down the Wind, Tony in West Side Story and Jerry in The Full Monty. His Australian credits include The Phantom of the Opera, South Pacific, Follies, and Showboat.

Joanna Strand (Master Class, The Phantom of the Opera) will take the role of Emma Carew and Madalena Alberto (Les Miserables, Fame, Zorro) will play Lucy Harris. Mark Goldthorp (Avenue Q, The Drowsy Chaperone, The Woman in White) will appear as John Utterson and Mark Turnbull (Les Miserables, Rocky Horror Show) will play the role of Sir Danvers Carew.

The cast also includes Andrea Miller, Lydia Jenkins, Patsy Blower, Louise Stanton, Hayley Driscoll, Rodney Ward, John McLarnon, Paul Tate, Antony Lawrence, Michael Blore and Tim Benton.

Jekyll and Hyde has music by Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn, (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Dracula) with book and lyrics by Academy Award-winning composer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse (Doctor Dolittle, Scrooge, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).

Jekyll and Hyde opens Wednesday 16th May 2012 and runs until Saturday 16th June 2012. Performances take place Tuesday to Saturday evenings at 7.30pm, and Sundays at 2pm and 6pm. There will be an extra Saturday matinee on 16th June at 3pm.
Tickets: £20 (£18 concessions)
