    When the police investigation into the brutal murder of Sir Danvers Carew fails to yield anything other than the name of a suspect who seems to have disappeared, his daughter Cordelia joins forces with her late father’s lawyer Gabriel Utterson to try and uncover the truth. But where is the sinister Edward Hyde and what is his connection to Utterson’s friend Dr Henry Jekyll?

    The team behind previous acclaimed productions of The Hound Of The Baskervilles and Dracula return with a brand new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s gothic masterpiece. Having delighted audiences around the world with their fresh, energetic and accessible take on open air theatre since 1999, British Touring Shakespeare are thrilled to being their innovative outdoor version of this classic tale to the stunning surroundings of the East Somerset Railway.

    This show has a recommended minimum age of 13+

    Please bear in mind this is as outdoor production so please dress appropriately for the weather.

    We recommend bringing along a picnic blanket or camping chair to sit on (and of course a picnic!)
