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.

We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the Pina Coladas and the practised smiles. Relationships are tested and tempers fray as the evening wears on, but each of them has a story of their own to tell.
