This new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevensons’ classic gothic tale is Crowd of 2’s latest offering and their tenth production. Adapted and performed by Russell Kennedy, it follows lawyer Gabriel Utterson as he recounts his attempts to unravel the mystery surrounding the loathsome Mr Hyde.

This production is Crowd of 2’s second one-man show and is touring the UK and Ireland in 2018. Do come along and meet Mr Utterson, Henry Jekyll MD … and perhaps glimpse the odious Edward Hyde.
