Dr Jekyll Hydes in Durham

Theatre is back after COVID

Dr Jekyll Hydes in Durham

"This is our first production since COVID restrictions were lifted and we are all looking forward to bringing theatre to everyone "
Louis Roberts

There will be a personality clash in Amble when a special preview of Northumberland Theatre Company’s production of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde takes place before the touring show goes to the Durham Fringe Festival in August.

The show at the town’s Dovecote Centre on Tuesday 27th July at 7.30pm is a “pay what you want” event making theatre accessible to everyone. In a bizarre, and some may say supernatural coincidence, the play of the famous novel written by Robert Louis Stephenson has been adapted for the stage by Stewart Howson and the aptly named associate producer Louis Roberts.

“I must say that it is a total coincidence that my name is so close to the great Robert Louis Stephenson, but I can assure you that the similarity with him or indeed Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde stops there,” said Louis. “This is our first production since COVID restrictions were lifted and we are all looking forward to bringing theatre to everyone both here at Amble and at Durham next month.” 

The gothic classic which looks at human personality and addiction will feature at the Durham Fringe Festival from 28th July to 1st August and stars North East actors Philip Harrison, Lewis Matthews and Sean Kenney. It also marks a directing debut for trainee director Hannah Maddison Huttly.
